This set has 10 coins in a proof finish, produced at the U.S. Mint in San Francisco with each bearing the facility’s ‘S’ mintmark. The coins are:

  • 2017-S Native American $1 Coin with a one-year design commemorating Sequoyah, inventor of the Cherokee Syllabary;
  • 2017-S Kennedy Half Dollar;
  • Five 2017-S ATB Quarters with the one-year designs celebrating Effigy Mounds National Monument (Iowa), Frederick Douglass National Historic Site (D.C.), Ozark National Scenic Riverways (Missouri), Ellis Island (New Jersey), and George Rogers Clark National Historical Park (Indiana).
  • 2017-S Roosevelt Dime;
  • 2017-S Jefferson Nickel; and
  • 2017-S Lincoln Cent.

All but three of them are in 90% silver and 10% copper. The quarters, half-dollar and dime are in silver while the dollar, nickel and penny are composed in regular clad like those found in circulation.

The coins are separated into two protective lenses that ship inside a simple cardboard box and accompanied with a card that bears the U.S. Mint’s certificate of authenticity and readout of specifications for every coin.

Melt Value of Silver Coins in Set

The silver coins of the set have a combined silver weight of 1.34 troy ounces. Based on Monday’s London silver price of $17.52 an ounce, each set has a silver melt value of $22.45. In contrast, the legal tender face value of the 10 coins totals $2.91. The set itself is priced at $47.95.
