U.S. Mint to issue a 2015 Reverse Proof set Coin World is reporting that the US Mint may produce a silver reverse proof mint set next year - and possibly a clad reverse proof set. These mint sets would be in addition to the existing uncirculated, proof and silver proof coin sets. I hope they don't do this. They should leave the reverse-proof for special releases. This is just too much.

The only proof set I ever bought from the mint was the 2012 proof set and I paid 31.95 . Great investment!

I like the way they say: "This set will mark the 50th anniversary of the production of Proof coins at the San Francisco Mint." You would think someone at the Mint would do the research, I thought the Mint started continuation of the Proof coins in 1968 in San Francisco after it was suspended in Philadelphia in the late 1964. I understand that San Francisco manufactured the 1965, 1966 and 1967 Special Mint Sets in 1966 – 1967.

That's OK they also made commeoratives marking the bicentennial of the "Star Spangled Banner" 198 years after the battle and the poem. If you have something you can make money on, why wait until the actual anniversary rolls around.

Annual Uncirculated set, Proof Set, Silver proof Set, Reverse Proof set, Reverse Silver Proof set . Am I missing any annual mint sets one would have to buy to get all of the coins?

From the way I read the report the regular proof set would be replaced by one with "multiple surface finishes". Who know the may decide to issue both a "regular" proof set AND a multiple finish proof set. Give you a mint set a five different proof sets.

The only way I can see them calling it the 50th anniversary of anything is trying to count the 1965 "special mint set" as a proof set. Coins commemorating other coins again. They're going to keep up with this nonsense it looks like. I really wish the mint would knock this kind of stuff off. It's getting harder to take them seriously anymore. Personally I wouldn't touch one of these with a 10-foot pole. I have nothing against reverse-proofs in general, but making a normal year's proof set in it just doesn't make it feel special anymore. Besides in my mind, an annual proof set should just be the proof versions of normal coins that year, or it defeats the purpose (I don't even buy the silver proof sets). Pass. And I hope they don't make this an annual thing. It's bad enough they're doing it once. (Fun fact: the first silver proof set, in 1992, was supposed to be a one time thing, commemorating the 200th anniversary of the Philadelphia Mint. It was so popular though that they kept making them every year since then.)

Even more of a reason that 2015 isn't the 50th anniversary of anything having to do with U.S. proof coins lol... maybe they should make a "50th anniversary of clad coinage" set or something.

Same point I make about people who pay to see movies that they admit aren't very good. If you keep paying for crap, they'll keep making it.

silver reverse proof mint set Impossible. It is either a proof set or a mint set. It can't be both.... Unless -- of course-- it is a gold Kennedy! Then anything is possible. Imagine the lines to buy!
