2006 United States Mint American Legacy Collection
The United States Mints 2006 American Legacy Collection
This remarkable collection of proof condition coins marks the second year of the United States Mint's American Legacy Collection that began in 2005. In addition to proof versions of all United States Mint 2006-dated circulating coins, this set also includes proof versions of the Benjamin Franklin Founding Father Silver Dollar and the San Francisco Old Mint Silver Dollar. Presented in unique and prestigious packaging, it is the most complete offering of United States Mint 2006-dated coins. This new, exclusive collection is strictly limited to 50,000 sets.
Proof coins have a brilliant mirror-like finish. The term "proof" refers to a specialized minting process, which includes manually feeding burnished coin planchets into presses fitted with specially polished dies. Each coin is struck multiple times so the softly frosted, yet detailed images seem to float above a mirror-like field. This set includes a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the Director of the United States Mint.
