Golden Eagle Coins Tip: A mint set contains coins in every denomination during a given year from a particular mint. For instance, you might buy a proof set from one of the six US mint facilities, containing a penny, nickel, quarter, half dollar, and dollar. If you were to purchase one of the 1996 silver proof mint sets, you would get one coin in each denomination, created by the proof coin process. Proof mint sets range in retail value from under $10 to over $600.
