2020 Silver Proof Set

If the Mint follows procedure established by previous year’s sets, the 2020 United States Mint Silver Proof Set™ should contain a total of at least ten coins, seven of which are struck from 90% silver. The remaining three strikes would be featured in their typical clad composition.

All of the coins in the set will be struck to proof quality, likely at the US Mint’s facility in San Francisco. The coins would represent all of the circulating coins produced by the Mint during that year, but of course would feature the different finish and some of the coins would be struck from the aforementioned silver.

Coins scheduled to likely be included in the 2020 Silver Proof Set include:

  • Lincoln Cent
  • Jefferson Nickel
  • Roosevelt Dime
  • National Park of American Samoa Quarter
  • Weir Farm Quarter
  • Salt River Bay Quarter
  • Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller Quarter
  • Tallgrass Prairie Quarter
  • Kennedy Half Dollar
  • Native American $1 Coin

Of course, the inclusion of all of these coins assumes the Mint does not change the make-up of the set, nor that Congress does not alter any of the coin programs before this set is scheduled to appear. It is likely, however, that at a minimum, the set will include at least the 2020 America the Beautiful Quarters® as they are part of a series authorized by Congress to run through the next year of 2021.

If the set consists of the aforementioned coins in the compositions established by previous US Mint sets like the 2011 Silver Proof Set, the five quarters as well as the Roosevelt Dime and the Kennedy Half Dollar would all be struck from 90% silver. In total, the seven coins would contain a total of 1.34 ounces of the precious metal.

The 2020 Silver Proof Set will likely contain the following ten coins:

National Park of American Samoa Quarter

This quarter dollar honors the national park found in the US territory of American Samoa (as the name suggests). The park was established on October 31, 1988 and was created to protect some of the natural resources found on the islands.

Weir Farm Quarter

The Weir Farm National Historic Site is located in Connecticut and was established in 1990. It commemorates the life of American Impressionist painter J. Alden Weir.

Salt River Bay Quarter

Established by Congress on February 24, 1992, the Salt River Bay National Historical Park and Ecological Preserve is located in the US Virgin Islands. It hosts the only site where members of the Columbus Expedition set foot on soil now controlled by the United States as well as preserving a fragile eco-system that is found there.

Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller Quarter

The Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park was created by Congress on August 26, 1992. It is named after three people who owned the managed forest in the area before turning it over to the federal government – George Perkins Marsh, Frederick Billings and Laurence and Mary French Rockefeller.

Tallgrass Prairie Quarter

The Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve of Kansas was established on November 12, 1996 and preserves just a small portion of the tallgrass prairie which once covered over 400,000 square miles of North America.

Kennedy Half Dollar

Gilroy Roberts designed the obverse portrait of John F. Kennedy that is shown on the obverse, assuming the Mint has not altered it by 2020. The reverse should show Frank Gasparro’s representation of the Seal of the President of the United States on the reverse.

Roosevelt Dime

Franklin D. Roosevelt has been shown on the obverse of the dime since the 1940’s with a portrait by John R. Sinnock. The reverse was also designed by Sinnock and shows an olive branch, torch and oak branch.

Lincoln Cent

Abraham Lincoln has been found on the obverse of the cent coin since 1909 with the same portrait as designed by Victor David Brenner. The reverse shows a Union Shield design by Lyndall Bass that first appeared in 2010.

Jefferson Nickel

Jamie Franki created the obverse portrait of Thomas Jefferson shown on this coin. The reverse was completed by Felix Schlag and shows Monticello, Jefferson’s home.

Native American $1 Coin

The Native American woman Sacagawea is shown on the obverse of this coin with a portrait by Glenna Goodacre. Sacagawea was the Shoshone woman who accompanied Lewis and Clark on their expedition through the frontiers of the United States between 1804 and 1806.
