2018-S Silver Reverse Proof Set - Lens for $1, 50c, 10c, 5, 1c (Obverses)

The 2018-S Silver Reverse Proof Set includes two protective lenses to hold its 10 coins. This CoinNews photo shows the lens for $1, 50c, 10c, 5, and 1c coins.

The 2018 Silver Reverse Proof Set is no longer available. The set, which marks the 50th anniversary of the San Francisco Mint first producing proof coins, went off-sale Tuesday, Aug. 21.

It’s now tagged with "This product is currently unavailable" along with a "Learn "More" link stating:

Gone in 30 days… not bad. Though I do agree with earlier comments regarding quality issue of this proof set. I ordered two sets and both the Rhode Island quarters had tiny marks on the reverse.. same location on both. 🙁

I returned one because of a blemish on the cent

I purchased ten sets on the first day and have kept them in their original box from the US Mint. Then I purchased a single set, and the coins are beautiful!!!!

I also purchased one set on first day of sales and coins are beautiful.

Agree, they look very sharp. I bought my usual annual mint, proof, and silver proof sets. Lined them up with the reverse proof at the end and it was fun to see how the eye appeal kept increasing. A mintage of 200,000 might have been a little high, but at least they were around long enough for everyone who was interested to get a purchase in.
