Introduction


The U.S. Mint's principal mission is to manufacture an adequate
volume of coin for the nation's commerce. In addition, the Mint has for
many years provided a variety of numismatic programs. Numismatics, the
study and collection of coins, medals and all media of exchange, is an an-
cient science known and practiced throughout the world. The Mint, as
many other national mints, has almost from its inception offered historic
medals and special coinage at the request of the American public. The
numismatic programs of the Bureau of the Mint are self-supporting from the
revenues derived from the sale of its products. All of our sales proceeds,
after reimbursement of our cost, are available for deposit to the general
fund of the Treasury for the benefit of all taxpayers.
This booklet has been designed to provide information about the items
available from the Mint and to assist you in ordering these products.
Should you have additional questions, you may wish to write to:

Mint Mailing List

If you wish to have your name add-
ed to the Mint's mailing list, please use
only the enclosed "Form for Adding
Name to Mailing List." The Bureau of
the Mint has only one customer mailing
list which is maintained at the San Fran-
cisco Old Mint. As our mailing list is a
computerized one, some time is in-
volved from the time a request is receiv-
ed by the Mint until the name and ad-
dress is placed on the list. Letter orders,
however, are accepted and one is not
required to use computer order cards to
order items from the Mint. Those on the
mailing list will receive order cards for
future offerings. If you are not interested
in ordering certain coin sets, please
disregard the notice of the availability,
as it is not possible to delete a name on
particular offerings. If you do not place
an order within two years, your name
will automatically be dropped from the
mailing list.

Privacy Act Statement

Furnishing information about your
address is voluntary. The legal authority
for its collection is 31 U.S.C. 369 and
324h. The information will be used to
identify where and to whom periodic
notices of numismatic offerings are to
be sent and for the processing and ship-
ping of orders. Failure to provide the in-
formation will result in your not receiving
the periodic notices of numismatic
offerings.


Remittances

When ordering, all remittances
should be made payable to "The
Bureau of the Mint." The Mint accepts a
personal check or cashier's check
drawn on a United States bank and
payable in U.S. currency. A money
order from the United States or an Inter-
national money order is also acceptable.
Please note that the Mint assumes no
liability for loss of payments when no
payee is specified on the remittance.

Annual Proof Coin Sets


A Proof Coin Set contains a cupro-
nickel half dollar, quarter dollar, dime
and the five and one cent pieces. Proof
coins bear the "S" mint mark and are
produced only at the San Francisco
Assay Office. The cost of the 1983 set
was $11.00 each. All aspects of produc-
tion, from dies to blanks to the striking
and handling of the proof coins, are
specially designed to provide the
ultimate in quality. The production of
proof coins is a unique operation with
special handling being given to both the
dies and the blanks. Proof blanks are
burnished with thousands of steel beads
and cleaning chemicals to buff out im-
perfections and polish the surface. The
polished blanks are then rinsed, dried
and transferred to the press room where
a final cleaning and inspection is given
them by the coin operator before they
are struck. Proof dies are first sand-
blasted resulting in a frosted ap-
pearance and texture to the die's sur-
face. The portrait is then covered with
tape and the background is polished
with several grades of diamond polish
and buffed. When the tape is removed
the frosted design against the polished
background gives a beautiful two-toned
effect to the die which is transferred to
the coins when they are individually
struck twice. Proof coins are sealed in a
clear plastic package to protect their
beauty.
Annual proof coin sets are offered
only during certain ordering periods. For
each program the dates of the accep-
tance of orders and the cost of the items
are announced prior to the ordering
period. Information about ordering these
products is made available to the public
through the Mint's mailing list and the
news media.


During the first quarter of each
year, orders are accepted for Proof Coin
Sets at the San Francisco Old Mint. The
price of these sets includes the ship-
ment by first class registered mail.
Usually the Mint begins to mail the sets
in May or June and all orders are mailed
by the end of December as specified in
the ordering material.
The Bureau of the Mint anticipates
that orders can be accepted for approx-
imately two months. An earlier cut-off
date is required if orders for the sets ex-
ceed the Mint's production capability. If
this occurs, it will be necessary to return
all orders received after the cut-off date.
If a remittance is deposited and we can-
not honor an order, a refund will be
made.


Order Limitation

Acceptance of all orders is contin-
gent upon the Mint production capacity
to meet an unpredictable demand.
Orders received after a cut-off date
has been established are returned.
Orders are not accepted in advance
of the official ordering period.


Prior Year Coin Sets

With the exception of the Bicenten-
nial Coin Sets and special souvenir sets,
only coin sets manufactured and issued
during the current year are available
from the U.S. Mint. For those issued
during previous years, you may wish to
consult coin dealers in your area.









George Washington Commemorative Half Dollar


This commemorative half dollar
marks the 250th anniversary of the birth
of George Washington, eulogized in
1799 by Henry Lee as "first in war, first
in peace, and first in the hearts of his
countrymen."
The coin, honoring our nation's first
President, also represents some "firsts"
for our own era. It is the first time since
1954 that there has been a U.S. com-
memorative half dollar and the first time
since 1964 that a 90% silver coin has
been produced by the U.S. Mint.
The commemorative concept itself,
however, dates almost to the origin of
coinage. Important personages, events,
or localities have appeared on special
coins minted by areas as diverse as an-
cient Greece and the modern Orient.
The tradition also exists with U.S.
coinage. The first U.S. commemorative
coin, the World's Columbian Exposition
piece, was struck in 1892. This issuance
of commemorative coins continued in
the United States through the first half
of the twentieth century until 1954 when
the last of the pieces honoring George
Washington Carver and Booker T.
Washington were minted in Philadel-
phia, Denver and San Francisco.
The George Washington half dollars
offer Americans new beginnings and
old traditions. It is a piece of remember-
ing and of anticipation.

Uncirculated George Washington
Coin

The George Washington Uncir-
culated Commemorative half dollar is
produced by the United States Mint in
Denver, Colorado. The coin is sealed in
polyester film and inserted in an infor-
mation folder. This folder, which in-
cludes a short message from Mint Direc-
tor Donna Pope detailing the coin's
physical characteristics and composi-
tion, is placed in a blue presentation
case. The outline of George
Washington's portrait, along with a
reproduction of his signature, is im-
printed on the top of the presentation
case.


Proof George Washington Coin

The George Washington Proof
Commemorative half dollar is produced
by the United States Assay Office in
San Francisco, California. The coin is
encapsulated and placed in a burgundy-
colored velour coin holder which allows
the coin to be displayed if desired. The
holder is inserted in a burgundy presen-
tation case. An outline of George
Washington's portrait, along with a
reproduction of his signature, is im-
printed on the top of the presentation
case.
An insert giving the coins physical
characteristics and a short message
from Mint Director Donna Pope detailing
the coin's composition is included with
each coin.

Olympic Commemorative Coins (con't.)


Public Law 97-220 provides that a
surcharge of no less than $10 for each
silver coin and $50 for each gold coin
be used to promote the Olympic move-
ment. These surcharges are incor-
porated into the costs of the coin sets.
Specifically, the law stipulates that 50
percent of the surcharges be promptly
paid to the United States Olympic Com-
mittee to be used to train United States
Olympic athletes, to support local or
community amateur athletic programs


and to erect facilities for the training of
such athletes. The remaining 50 percent
of the surcharges shall be paid to the
Los Angeles Olympic Organizing Com-
mittee to be used to stage and promote
the 1984 games in Los Angeles.
More than 840,000 Olympic coins
have been sold with gross sales in ex-
cess of $62 million. Of this amount,
$14.5 million in surcharges have been
collected for the two Olympic

Bicentennial Proof Coin Sets and
Bicentennial Uncirculated Coin Sets


Under Public Law 93-127, Con-
gress authorized a new coinage design
and date emblematic of the Bicentennial
of the American Revolution for dollars,
half dollars and quarters. They also
mandated the mintage of at least 45
million silver specimens of these coins
to assure their wide availability to the
public.

To encourage public participation in
the national coinage tribute to the
Bicentennial. the Treasury Department
sponsored a national competition for the
new designs. As a result of this competi-
tion a colonial drummer, Independence
Hall, and the Liberty Bell and moon
were selected to appear on the reverses
of 1776-1976 dated Washington
quarters, Kennedy half dollars and
Eisenhower dollars, respectively.


Each set contains a dollar, half
dollar and quarter dollar. The silver con-
tent in the three coins is 40 percent, or
.5381 fine troy ounces. The Bicentennial
sets were first offered for sale in 1974.
Sales were suspended in 1979 because
increases in the price caused the silver
value to approach their sales price.
Beginning in August of 1980 these sets
were again offered to the public and
sold for $15.00 and $12.00, respectively.
On August 18, 1982, the Mint reduced
the price of these sets. They now sell for
$12.00 and $9.00, respectively. The sale
of these items is dependent on the price
of silver and, therefore, is subject to
change. Currently there is an order
limitation of 100 Bicentennial Proof Coin
Sets per customer. There is no limitation
on the Bicentennial Uncirculated Coin
Sets at the present time. These sets are
also available for sale at the Mint sales
areas.

Additional Information:
The Coinage Act of 1965, Public Law 89-81 (July 23, 1965),


provided for the


elimination of silver from the dime and the quarter and that it be
substantially reduced in the half dollar. (The half dollar was the only
coin produced between 1965 and 1970 which contained silver.)
The Bank Holding Company Act of 1970, Public Law 91-607 (December 31,
1970), provided for the removal of silver from the dollar and the half
dollar denominations and stipulated that they be of a cupro-nickel
composition.
The Bicentennial Coinage Act, Public Law 93-127 (October 18, 1973),
authorized the minting of dollars, half dollars, and quarter dollars with
reverse designs emblematic of the Bicentennial of the American
Revolution. The Treasury was also authorized to mint 45 million
silver clad coins of the same design for inclusion in special three
coin proof and uncirculated sets. The 1976 quarter dollar, half dollar,
and dollar of 40% silver were only included in the Bicentennial Proof
and Uncirculated Coin Sets.
