Proof vs. Mint Sets

Golden Eagle Coins Tip: US Mint sets are specially packaged groups of coins containing at least one coin from almost all of the denominations of coins issued by one branch of the US Mint for a given year, such as 1964. In the US, proof mint sets come from Philadelphia, home of the Liberty Bell, and Denver. If your US Mint set has mint marks of "D" (Denver), "P" (Philadelphia), "S" (San Francisco), or "W" (West Point), you know where your money has been.
