Even though these coins come from the U S Mint, they are uncirculated gem proof and not always perfect. Some may have spots or natural toning.The US Mint ceased production of 90% silver coins in 1964. Starting in 1992, the mint resumed minting 90% silver dimes, quarters and half dollars exclusively for their annual Silver Proof Sets. These coins are produced to the exact weight and specifications as were 1964 and before 90% silver coins. All of these proof coins bear the "S" San Francisco mintmark. Most of these coins were produced with a deep cameo appearance.
These are exceptionally brilliant, beautiful coins. Since these coins were only produced for Silver Proof Sets, the mintage numbers are quite low.For 2000, the mint only produced 965,421 Silver Proof Sets. Important note: These coins were only inspected to verify the year and count.
They were not individually inspected to cull for cameos, deep cameos, variations, toned coins, spots or mint errors. There is 7.2339 troy ounces of silver in 40 Silver Washington Quarters.
