mint set: a complete set of coins of each denomination produced by a particular mint. All are made for general ciculation, but put into a case.


proof set: a complete set of proof coins of each denomination made in a year. Proof coins are specially produced coins made from highly polished planchets and dies and often struck more than once to accent the design. Proof coins receive the highest quality strike possible and can be distinguished by their sharpness of detail and brilliant, mirror-like surface.


prestige set: contain a commemorative dollar and half dollar for that year as well as a proof issue coins
