U.S. proof sets are crafted exclusively for collectors, releasing annually with much anticipation. These sets are always highly sought after due to the unique proof finish on each coin in the set, as well as their limited production. 

Proof coins are specially minted coins, and are much scarcer in number than their circulated counterparts. Produced using polished dies and planchets, they end up with a highly polished, mirror-like finish on each coin. Mostly made for collectors and special commemorations, proof coins retain their numismatic value due to their pristine condition and limited mintages.
