2009 DC & US Territories Silver Proof SetThe United States Mint will offer the 2009 DC & US Territories Quarters Silver Proof Mint Set at noon ET on Monday, March 23. The six-coin set has a price tag of $29.95, plus shipping and handling.

Traditional annual coin sets are always very popular with collectors, but unlike the standard 2009 Quarters Proof Set, which launched on Jan. 5 and is priced at $14.95, the six quarter-dollars in the silver set are struck in 90 percent silver.

The set includes the honoring coin reverse designs:

  • District of Columbia (DC) – Duke Ellington
  • Puerto Rico – Isla del Encanto (Island of Enchantment)
  • Guam – Guahan I Tanó ManChamorro (Guam, Land of the Chamorro)
  • American Samoa -Samoa Muamua Le Atua (Samoa, God is First)
  • U.S. Virgin Islands – United in Pride and Hope
  • Northern Mariana Islands – Latte stone on an island with a Carolinian canoe

Each quarter is produced at the US Mint in San Francisco and bears the "S" mintmark.

Until the 2009 set launches, collectors may purchase the five-coin 2008 Quarter Silver Proof Set for $25.95 directly from the Mint. The most recent silver coin stats show 427,511 have been sold.
