For the first year ever the US Mint has decided to release the 2011 Mint Proof Set on January 11 instead of July. This is great news for proof set collectors. The coins in a proof set are not the exact same ones that are found in your pocket change. Proof coins are highly polished versions made from different dies bearing a S mintmark from the San Fransico Mint rather than a D or no mintmark like their circulated counterparts. Sometimes the proof coin version of a coin is made from a different metal composition than the circulated coin. This was the case for the 2009 Lincoln Proof Pennies minted for the anniversary of the original Lincoln penny in 1909 which were minted in the original, mostly copper composition to celebrate.  Sometimes highly valuable error or die varieties will be put into the proof sets by mistake and this is a collectors gold mine.

The 2011 Mint Proof Set includes 14 coins from 2011.  These include 5 2011 America the Beautiful Quarters, 5 2011 Presidential Golden Dollars, 1 2011 Native American Golden Dollar, one 2011 Kennedy Half Dollar, one 2011 Roosevelt Dime, one 2011 Jefferson Nickel and one 2011 Lincoln Shield Penny.

The easiest way and normally cheapest way to obtain a 2011 Mint Proof Set is to order it directly from the US Mint.  They are currently $31.95 plus shipping from the US mint.  The mint also has a subscription program that will bill you each year for the current US Mint Proof Set right when it comes out and send you your coins as soon as they are available.  When the proof sets sell out at the US mint you will still be able to get them from your local reputable coin dealer or on or Ebay.
