This annual proof set is likely to be the most purchased United States Mint product this year, based on sales of past sets. The Proof Set is one of the Mint’s oldest products issued each year.
Inside this year’s set are 14 proof coins with each produced at the U.S. Mint facility in San Francisco, California. The coins include:
- 2014-S Proof Lincoln cent

- 2014-S Proof Kennedy half-dollar
- (4) 2014-S Proof Presidential $1 Coins
- 2014-S Proof Native American $1 Coin
2014 quarters include one-year-only designs commemorating Great Smoky Mountains National Park of Tennessee, Shenandoah National Park of Virginia, Arches National Park of Utah, Great Sand Dunes National Park of Colorado, and Everglades National Park of Florida. As of this writing, only the Great Smoky Mountains National Park has been released into circulation. (See release dates for 2014 quarters.)
2014-S Presidential $1 Coins include one-year-only designs commemorating former United States Mint presidents Warren G. Harding, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, and Franklin D. Roosevelt. Only the Harding $1 has been released so far.
These 14 proof coins are packaged within three plastic lens that both protect the coins and also enable seeing them from either side.

As an FYI, earlier this year the United States Mint released the same proof quarters inside the 2014 United States Mint America the Beautiful Quarters Proof Set. It remains available from the Mint for $14.95. This set, of course, just has the five quarters and not the proofs of the other denominations — the cent, nickel, dime, half dollar, and the five dollar coins.
