About 2008 Quarter Proof Sets
No two states are further apart than frigid, polar Alaska and sunny, tropical Hawaii. Yet, these two states appear together, along with Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Arizona, in a 2008 quarter proof set. Besides being part of the U.S. Mint's "50 State" quarters program, there are other reasons these sets are popular with collectors. For one, it is an easy way to get a complete collection of the high-quality proof versions of these coins. The 2008 clad proof quarter set contains copper and nickel clad uncirculated coins with a proof finish for collectors. Metal investors may want to spend a little bit more to get the 2008 State Quarter silver proof set that contains silver versions of the quarters. Both options are available from sellers on eBay, and many are still in their original packaging from the U.S. Mint. Proof coins are always considered valuable by collectors because of their comparative rarity and high quality, and the 2008 quarter proof set can only increase in value over time.
