What’s a proof coin? Proofs are the finest coins produced by the US Mint. The proof blanks are specially treated and hand-polished and cleaned so the images are struck perfectly. They’re also struck at least twice, which results in a frosted and highly-detailed design and mirror-like background. You’ll want to see this coin in-person to appreciate all the fine details. It’ll make a great addition to your coin or sports collection – order now.
