The 2017 Proof Set was released by the United States Mint on March 29, 2017. This set saw a further reduction in the total number of coins included since the Presidential $1 coin series concluded in 2016 with the coin for President Reagan, reducing the number of coins for the 2017 set to 10.
The pricing of $26.95 for this set reflected the fact that three fewer coins were included compared to the 2016 set.
Each set (Buy on eBay) included five America the Beautiful quarters honoring the Effigy Mounds National Monument in Iowa; the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site in Washington, DC; the Ozark National Scenic Riverways in Missouri; Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty National Monument in New Jersey; and George Rogers Clark National Historic Park in Indiana.
The sets also included a Native American $1 coin that features a reverse design with a profile of Sequoyah writing “Sequoyah from Cherokee nation” in syllabary (the Cherokee writing system) along the design’s border.
The 2017 set further included a Kennedy half dollar, Roosevelt dime, Jefferson nickel and Lincoln cent.
Each coin is struck in Proof with frosted, raised design element s against a mirrored background, and each coin carries an “S” mint mark for the San Francisco Mint where they were struck.
The coins are sealed in two protective lenses, and they are housed in a cardboard box that has an image of the Washington Monument on the front and images of each America the Beautiful quarter on the back.
