San Francisco Mint’s 2018 Silver Reverse Proof Set Launch (Updated)

by Darrin Lee Unser on July 23, 2018 · 101 comments

One of the most unique collectibles from the United States Mint this year debuts today at noon Eastern with the release of the 2018-S Silver Reverse Proof Set.

One protective lens holds five 25-cent pieces while the other contains the $1, 50c, 10c, 5c and 1c coins. Both lenses ship inside an illustrated cardboard sleeve and are accompanied by a U.S. Mint Certificate of Authenticity.

The set is comprised of 10 coins each from the U.S. Mint’s facility in San Francisco and bearing a distinctive finish. They are struck in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the San Francisco Mint’s first production of regular proof sets.

The U.S. Mint included a reverse proof coin in its 2015 March of Dimes Special Silver Set. This CoinNews photo shows a regular or standard proof dime (left) and a reverse proof dime (right).

Coins from the set are minted in reverse proof — an opposite of standard proofs. Reverse proof coins exhibit mirror-like artwork and inscriptions against frosted backgrounds.

Limits, Price and Included Coins

During the first 24 hours of sales, the U.S. Mint has instituted an order limit of 10 sets per household. No more than 200,000 sets will be offered, and some believe those will not last long.

Priced at $54.95, included in the 2018-S Silver Reverse Proof Set are the following collector coins:

  • 2018-S Reverse Proof Native American $1 Coin
  • 2018-S Reverse Proof Silver Kennedy Half Dollar
  • 2018-S Reverse Proof Silver Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore Quarter (Michigan)
  • 2018-S Reverse Proof Silver Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Quarter (Wisconsin)
  • 2018-S Reverse Proof Silver Voyageurs National Park Quarter (Minnesota)
  • 2018-S Reverse Proof Silver Cumberland Island National Seashore Quarter (Georgia)
  • 2018-S Reverse Proof Silver Block Island National Wildlife Refuge Quarter (Rhode Island)
  • 2018-S Reverse Proof Silver Roosevelt Dime
  • 2018-S Reverse Proof Jefferson Nickel
  • 2018-S Reverse Proof Lincoln Cent

Designs exclusive to this year include those on the five America the Beautiful quarter dollars and on the Native American $1 Coin.

Three of the coins — the cent, the nickel and the dollar — are in regular compositions. The half dollar, five quarters and dime are manufactured in 90% silver (and 10% copper) so each set has a total silver weight of 1.338 troy ounces. While their finishes are different, the 10 coins and their metallic make-up are identical to the standard Silver Proof Set.

This CoinNews photo shows a protective lens holding standard silver quarters from a regular 2018 Silver Proof Set. The quarters in the set released today bear the same one-year-only designs and metal compositions but are in an opposite reverse proof finish.

This year’s regular Silver Proof Set launched in April for $49.95 and has sales of 198,041 through July 15. Last year’s set is also available from the Mint. Its price is $47.95 and it has sales of 348,427 through the 15th.

Ordering

The 2018-S Silver Reverse Proof Set may be ordered directly from the U.S. Mint via its website page dedicated to Proof Sets. Orders are also accepted by calling (800) USA MINT (872-6468).

Update 1 (July 24 at 10:05 a.m. ET): First-day sales reached 114,108 sets, according to the U.S. Mint. CoinNews will publish a photo or two of a set this afternoon.

Update 2 (July 24 at 1:06 p.m. ET): The Mint revised first-day sales to 106,108 sets.

I’m still thinking about this set. My questions to myself are if I want this set from the Mint now ungraded, the whole set graded by PCGS or just some of the coins graded and if so which ones? Or do I want them both, graded and ungraded? Sometimes I just over think things. Anyway good luck to you all.

Watch seller crc-1 on Ebay. Usually has great prices on full sets (SP-70 grade for this set). 200,000 mintage you won’t have any trouble getting a mint direct set. I am going to spend the $70-$90 to get the graded set.

MCM has less than 50 employees. They seem really big, but aren’t. They make their living on mostly modern US & foreign coins. They just happen to be in Sarasota, Florida where NGC has its headquarters & have a “special” arrangement with them for grading their modern coins.

Most people who buy on ebay and pay more than issue price when still available at the USM are either:
1. Ignorant
2. Sadist

Mostly #1, maybe greedy for #3. The old saying is, “Buy the book before the coin.” It seems a lot of people who buy “for an investment” or “for the grandchildren” really don’t know what they are doing. I always ask if an item is such a good deal, then why is it being sold rather than held for a better return?

I bought 10 sets because I like this years quarters and I think this set will have LONG TERM potential. Traditionally the first reverse proof of a particular coin has good return and although 200 grand is a lot of sets that is not much compared to the amount of regular silver proof sets every year. Plus if some of the sets have damaged coins I can return that set, CHEERS

Chas Barber
Guest

Good idea, but the USM flubbed again! 200k are that many of U$ left to dump $53 for like 13.$ worth of silver….. Coins sales @ USM are in a death spiral & they have no idea how to stop the bleeding 7 make some $$ again.. enough PC, enough of the same old, same olde…. Why Not .999 they can do it legally, 200k would sell out in a flash… I think sell out like in 2019….. maybe

Don’t know why that would happen. The 2014 reverse kennedy is selling in that range and it has 25k more produced. https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l2632.R2.TR3.TRC1.A0.H0.X2014+rever.TRS0.TSS0&_nkw=2014+reverse+proof+kennedy+half+dollar&_sacat=253

Andrew mentioned the 2014 selling in the $50 range and wondering why the 2018 is similarly priced : He’s right, that makes no sense because the 2014 Reverse Proof Kennedy cost about $20 per coin (4 coins in that $104 set with shipping) whereas the 2018 Reverse Proof Kennedy costs $6 per coin with shipping ($60 set divided by ten coins). I saw those $50 2018 Kennedy reverse proof coins and puzzled over why anyone would pay $50 for one coin when they could pay $60 and get the TEN coins that come in the set. I also wondered if any of the buyers were confused and thinking they were going to get the whole set or something because otherwise it makes no sense. Last year I got the 2017 enhanced set and an extra for grading. I then saw that you could buy the whole set in SP70 for… Read more »

I observed that also, Woody. The Kennedy Half is selling for between $40.00 and $65.00.

Andrew Woody
Guest
Andrew Woody

I tracked an auction sale a week ago to make sure people are still paying that much and it was bid up to $40, ungraded. No way the 2018 sells for less then that with 25k less produced then the 2014. Anyone who isn’t buying these 2018 sets is losing money, IMO. I’ll probably sell off rest of set to pay for sets and sit on Kennedys if they take a bit of a dip in the short term. They are the Key Kennedy in the reverse proof set and that means they will carry premium.

Jon
Guest

no quick flip on this one, the big boys will buy the rest and flood the market

Andrew Woody
Guest

114k sold first day and only about 95 listings on ebay so it looks like there are a lot of people holding them, IMO. High demand.

I wonder if they will make a reverse proof Silver Eagle? At first I thought it might be RP in the San Fran Eagle in the catalog until details came out on it showing it to be a regular coin.
But there is still hope, as the Limited Edition Set may contain the Reverse Proof. It could theoretically have both the regular proof and reverse proof in that set.
Does anyone have any thoughts on if we will get a reverse proof silver Eagle this year?

Rodney Moore
Guest
Rodney Moore

I noticed that last year people mentioned that one of the incentives to buy the 2017 enhanced set was because the Lincoln Cent would be the key date with the lowest ever mintage of 225,000. I guess this set blows that incentive out of the water because it now has the new key date Lincoln with 200,000. Right?
I’m not a Lincoln Cent collector so I may have that wrong but it’s something that I’ve pondered over since this set has a mintage lower than the enhanced set.
I imagine that was carefully calculated quite purposefully.
I’m buying the set primarily for the Kennedy 50C and with a mintage of 200,00 I really don’t see a reason to buy the set aside from just wanting the coins for a collection. With that high a mintage I don’t think these would be any type of investment.

Andrew Woody
Guest
Andrew Woody

Sometimes “key” coin premiums don’t make sense. Being the lowest mintage is all it takes to carry a premium in many cases. Prime example? 1996 Silver Eagle with over 3 million minted. https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l2632.R2.TR12.TRC2.A0.H1.X1996.TRS0.TSS0&_nkw=1996+silver+eagle&_sacat=39482 Def not in short supply but carry premium. This set has many coins in same situation. The penny. The Quarters. The Kennedy.

Andrew Woody
Guest
Andrew Woody

There are some circulating coins that carry odd premiums just because they are “key” coins. Mintages in the 10’s of millions but they are “key” because they have the lowest relative mintage.

There is no doubt this is a beautiful set and one to add to your collection. Personally, I am on the sideline at least for the moment. This is due to no celebration events this year in my family where this set could make a nice gift. At my age, I am more in a downsizing mode vs. adding to my collection. This set is for collectors, not investors. The guy on TV will hype these up and sell them to gullible viewers at quadruple prices. Individuals looking to flip will do good to break even today. Tomorrow they may be selling for less. Again, great hobby but not investment.

Zach
Guest

I watch HSN almost for the hilarity factor. How they tout (for example) their exclusive FDOI from ANACS and somehow I NEVER see any of those being listed online, or how they say that you’re getting $500 worth of coins for $100 just because one particular catalog is actually even more overpriced than they are.

I didn’t think this set would sell out, but after selling half of them on the 1st day, they just might. I collect Kennedy’s and have all of the different finishes of the modern coins over the years which is why I bought this set. I also like the ’64 proof coins in Cameo and Deep Cameo as well as the Accented Hair proofs from ’64.
Cheers!

Jon
Guest

I can tell you one thing right now, these sets are still available, which means the big boys don’t believe in them, if they did they would be sold out now. these sets will be selling for less then issue price in the not so distant future

Andrew Woody

It took over 120 days for 2014 set with 225k to sell out and the reverse proof kennedy from that set sells for $40 ungraded. http://www.wondercoins.com/News_(details04).html This set will sell out well before that and the Kennedy is a new Key coin smile

bought one graded set . didn’t cost me anything.

.Bobby p,
The graded set you got was it a NGC, ANACS or PCGS? And if you don’t mind me asking, how much did it cost you and from where was it from. I’ve been looking for a PCGS PF70 set but I can not find not even one coin by PCGS. I wonder what the deal is there?

This set is way over priced, I believe that those that bought several of these sets will regret it.

I’d buy the rest from the Mint if I could.

These coins are fall under the “creeper” category.

When what comes around goes around, people will wish that they bought more.

My instincts say that the mintage of all new reverse proofs will disappear for some time.

nice set for sure,but i think the 2017 EU set were prettier coins ,more down to earth, too bad that 17 penny is no longer king of the lincolns mintage wise. it just goes to show you never know when it come to coins.

This set is a sleeper. Consider the value of the silver melt, the low mintage of 200K, the reverse proof design, the celebration of 50 Year Anniversary of San Fran mint producing proof coins, the S mint mark and all coins in probably PR69 or 70 grade. Cannot lose any money on these sets. I have a very modest amount of 50 ordered. I will kick myself for not buying more. Almost unlimited upside with almost no downside risk! No brainer to buy these. AND they are GORGEOUS.

Ken T –

You are so right! Everyone has 7 days from receipt of their order to return any sets that they don’t want for ANY reason! Dealers will return most “69s” & keep the “70s”. Some collectors will have realized they don’t need the 10-set limit they bought on the first day of issue & return 5 or more sets they don’t need or want now.

better read the new return policy, only 2 percent of the sets you buy can be returned. your account could get suspended if you don’t abide

SILVER has been bouncing from $15.50 to $16.25 for two years. That’s a 75 cent profit. It has gone from the low to the high sometimes twice a week. I believe it will drop below $15?. I like silver.

There winners….. These reverse proof coins sell. I don’t know why. when they can just call the mint themselves?.. But If you want a free 70 coin or a set. it is available. I sell all my sets before the sets actual release. I tell them I do not have them and may not get them. If I sell two . I order three?. usually I get and sell my limit. I sell everyone.

The Kennedy’s have a weak strike on the ones i have personally seen. the head had very little cameo. nothing like the other coins.
something you might look at before buying?..
I got a nice dark black 70s. for free.. .

I’ve been looking for the set in PCGS PF70 but I have not seen any at all! Not a single one of them in any grade! I wonder what’s up with that?

bobby p
Guest
bobby p

I prefer PCGS my set is NGC. bought it off TV. Rick T. he had the best looking coins. very nice looking coins PR71?. the other tv shows had the same coins for sale. They didn’t have a single Kennedy with that deep cameo. I will buy a PCGS Kennedy for my collection. Ebay had a couple off the Kennedys in PCGS. the deep cameo Kennedy’s are going up?. If you want one I would say get it soon?. or let the set cool off.
Not all 70s are equal.
This one coin shows the need for a new grading system for 70s.
I want a spotless frosty deep cameo coin. Not the 70s I have seen that have no cameo at all . But still get a DC 70 grade.

bobby p
Guest
bobby p

I was told PCGS hasn’t released any coins as off yesterday. they should be showing up soon. I will be looking for a DC 70 kennedy. I don’t buy from a listing that says. the coin in the photo is not the coin you will receive. I am not pushing a TV show . but if you want top quality coins. Ricks coins are worth a look before buying. The flippers are tearing these boxes open. if you like OGP might want to grab one?. I have seen 3 different RP Kennedy’s . Black cameo head and Silver Background. Black cameo Head Gold background. And a week struck kennedy.

Dont give OCD label collectors any ideas bobby. By pointing out that theres 3 types of kennedys, now they must get all 3 slab labels. ” weak strike kennedy” the in between ” cameo kennedy” and the ” deep cameo kennedy”. Ngc pcgs etc gonna have a field day.

A dealer I recommend is a PCGS-Authorized coin dealer (L&C Coins in Los Alamitos, CA) who just got the PCGS 70 sets put up on their website today. 70s are hard to come by as a complete set on these since most of the Kennedy’s have problems as well as the Block Island ATB quarter. The set is $490 & selling really fast!

bobby p. –

Rick Tomaska is a great guy. But, don’t buy from his tv show as his prices have to be higher to pay for the most expensive type of advertising. Call him at his private coin business which has been in business for decades before he.started a tv show just a few years ago, & he will offer you a better deal.

Happy Collecting to all !

I deal with a local shop. just about everything I do is thru this one store.
But he doesn’t have that PL68. 65-66-67 SMS Kennedys that Rick had. I asked him. Two days ago I bought this set from the TV show.

This coin boom we are currently in . Will not last?. With 4+ TV channels selling coins. This is a boom. I have learned from these shows. Remember baseball cards. The only ones worth anything today . Are the highest graded ones.

When I buy a coin. I want the best. especially new coins.

As soon as PCGS releases These Kennedy’s I want one. If I can afford it?. Top grade PCGS coins are going to be tough to get?.

cant Waite to see how PCGS grades the 70s.

So are you going to get the 3 different RP kennedys slab labels Bobby. “Weak strike” n”cameo strike” and ” deep cameo”. You must if you want a complete collection. Numismaticnews the buzz its calling the weak strike kennedy an error. They say the reverse side has the RP look but the obverse side looks like an uncirculated coin, no frosting or cameo at all. Its just a weak strike guys, obviously somebody at the mint forgot to change or clean the obverse die. dont try to make gold out of toilet paper.

No I don’t want to buy a half dozen coins. but if I want to continue a set that I started 15 years ago?. That I would like to finish it also? I have to buy ONE reverse proof. and the P n D I could have completed a couple other sets at these prices. but I pick the coin that will never end.
The Kennedys. I looked at a dozen ogp sets. everyone had no cameo on the front. should be a job opening at the mint.
is this Kennedy coin going to just continue. have any of you spent one.

bobby p
Guest
bobby p

I seen a Kennedy that says error . still in OGP . cool right were is the error. the error is the front. it never got its frosting?. I agree there is no frost / cameo. doesn’t make it a error.
What I don’t understand . Is how anyone off these coins left the Mint. were is the quality control. on a limited set.
I don’t see a error. I see a lazy Government employee that didn’t clean there die ? I guess. I don’t know.
Anyway the front off these coins. look like a regular proofs?. with very little cameo at all.
Tilt the OGP in the light back and forth. the cameo is there on the ones I looked at. its just not as obvious as the other coins. the store is asking double for the OGP that is labeled a error.

Yeah I went there and got a set. About 3 days latter I got an email saying they had the Block Island in 70. Since I bought the set they offered the 70 Block Island for $50 off their regular price of $500. At the time they had not yet offered to the general public. I’m not sure if I’ll jump on that. But the set just does not look right with that one 69. Maybe I’ll go ahead and just get the NGC set. But that being said it only shows that PCGS does really give an accurate grade.

you could have bought a decent set off coins?. time will tell.
OGP the coins you have. I believe will be hard to find in time.
they are cracking these sets open as quick as they can.

Have another question. As i stated i ordered 4 sets 1st day all where great looking. So this past week ordered 3 more sets for a couple family members plus another set for myself. Well recieved them yesterday. Well the sets look good except for all 3 kennedy halfs look more like burnished american eagles. Question is should i keep them hoping they will he errors or return them to them mint?

Wonder what happened to there quality control at the mint. Looks like they are just after the money they can get. Not about what kinda product they put out. Its a shame

the quality on the Kennedy is the worst on any coin I have ever seen..
THERE IS NO ERROR COIN IN THIS SET
The 70s will hold there value?. OGP sets will stay $54 bucks.
I have to buy both to keep my set complete. I don’t believe there are 200,000 Kennedy collectors left.. If there was these sets would be gone? that leaves the FLIPPERS . and the new guy. .It is time to end the P and D Kennedys bags and rolls. The mint wants to continue it . there are several limited sets they can stick them in.
End the Kennedys .they have turned this coin into a half version off the silver eagles. I still haven’t figured out how many different Kennedys coins I have to buy this year.
