United States Mint 2013 Silver Proof Set

Having 1.338 troy ounces of silver from seven of the fourteen coins that have a composition of 90% silver, the 2013 Silver Proof Set had a melt value of $31.70 on the day of its release when silver was $23.69 an ounce. (See always current silver set melt values.)

Other proofs in the set are of the composition found in circulation versions of the coins, meaning they have no significant melt value. Of course, the set itself is produced for collectors and its real value surpasses the melt value of its coins. The United States Mint is selling it now for $67.95, and hundreds of thousands will be purchased by collectors before sales ends.

As to the proof coins in the 2013 Silver Proof Set, they are produced at the San Francisco Mint and each has the ‘S’ mintmark. They include:

  • One 2013-S Clad Proof Lincoln Cent
  • One 2013-S Clad Proof Jefferson Nickel
  • One 2013-S Silver Proof Roosevelt Dime
  • Five 2013-S Silver Proof America the Beautiful Quarters
  • One 2013-S Silver Proof Kennedy Half Dollar
  • Four 2013-S Clad Proof Presidential $1 Coins
  • One 2013-S Clad Proof Native American $1 Coin

Presidential portraits found on this year’s Presidential $1 Coins are William McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft and Woodrow Wilson. Designs on this year’s America the Beautiful Quarters depict White Mountain National Forest, Perry’s Victory Memorial, Great Basin National Park, Fort McHenry National Monument and Mount Rushmore National Memorial.
