The set, which should not be confused with the Limited Edition Silver Proof Set that is expected to be released later in the year, contains the same coins as can be found in the regular proof set. Only here, as the name suggests, the majority of the coins have been replaced with coins stuck not from the usual cupro-nickel but rather 90% silver coins instead.

The complete set contains all five of the 2017 America the Beautiful quarter dollar coins, struck from .900 Fineness silver, honouring the :

In addition to these silver coins the set is completed by one regular proof Jefferson Nickel, one proof Lincoln penny coin and a 2017 proof Native American Dollar coin featuring the effigy of Sequoyah.
