US Mint officials have announced the introduction of a special Proof set featuring all four Presidential dollar coins minted for 2007. These collector sets were supposed to go on sale today, however an (unofficial mint) spokesperson stated their release has been postponed until sometime in the spring.
The special 2007 Presidential $1 coin Proof Sets will contain four coins: George Washington dollar, John Adams dollar, James Madison dollar, and the Thomas Jefferson dollar. Each of these Proof dollar coins will feature an “S” mint mark indicating it was minted by the United States government at the US Mint in “San Francisco” California. An unusual feature will be that the S mintmark will be on the edge of the coin rather than below the date. Special proof set holders will allow collectors to see the edge of the coin through the front and back of the holder. There is some speculation in the coin hobby that the delay in releasing the Proof Presidential Dollar sets is because more time is need to secure the new type of holders that the mint will be using.
