George Washington Proof Presidential Dollars are special collectible versions of the circulating coin.
Proof coins are minted with sharp relief on specially treated and polished blanks. Coins typically have frosted raised design elements and mirrored backgrounds to produce a cameo effect.
These proof coins were offered in a 2007 Presidential Dollar Coin Proof Set, 2007 US Proof Set, 2007 US Silver Proof Set, and as individual proof coins. These products were available directly from the US Mint in the year of issue.
The date and mint mark are located on the edge inscription of the coin. Special packaging was created for proof sets so that collectors could view the edges of the coins.
