Description

This is the official Proof Set, as issued by the U.S. Mint in 1968. It has been unavailable from the U.S. Mint since 1968 and is increasingly hard to find.
Proofs are the highest quality U.S. coins, and a Proof Set is a limited edition collection of the year’s coins.
The 1968 Proof Set includes all coins from the Penny through the Half Dollar.
The set includes the .400 silver Kennedy Half Dollar. This was the first-ever .400 silver coin struck as a Proof.
The coins were struck at the San Francisco Mint; it was the first Proof Set ever made in San Francisco.
All coins are in original Proof quality and are still in the original U.S. Mint protective packaging.
1968 highlights: Richard Nixon was elected President, Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy were assassinated, Apollo 8 astronauts orbited the moon, high jumper Dick Fosbury and long jumper Bob Beamon won gold at the Olympic Games, and figure skater Peggy Fleming captured gold at the Winter Olympics.
