1994 US Mint Proof Set
The 1994 Proof Set (Buy on eBay) saw its mintage drop slightly from the prior year. This trend would continue for proof set mintages of the next few years. The sets once again contained a total of five coins with a face value of 91 cents. The five coins were minted at the San Francisco Mint and carried the “S” mint mark. Coins included the Kennedy Half, Washington Quarter, Roosevelt Dime, Jefferson Nickel, and Lincoln Cent.
In addition to the standard proof set, the US Mint issued the 1994 Prestige Proof Set (Buy on eBay) which contained the 1994 World Cup Commemorative Half and Dollar coins. These prestige format sets had been introduced a decade earlier and generally contained the coins of the regular proof set plus the non-gold commemorative issues for the year. This year’s set was originally priced at $57.00 and sold 175,893 units.
The 1994 Proof Set had its packaging redesigned with a new brighter color. The prior purple colored packaging had been used from 1984 to 1993. The new packaging had the coins fitted within a green colored cardboard inner holder and sealed in a plastic lens. This lens was placed within an outer green cardboard box with silver printing “United States Mint Proof Set 1994.”
