Seven of the coins found in the set are struck from their standard circulating composition. The remaining seven are struck from 90% silver.

The seven precious metal coins include the dime, the half dollar and the five quarter dollars. Together, these seven strikes total 1.33823 ounces of silver.

The United States Mint describes its proof quality coins with:

"United States Mint proof coins feature sharp relief and a mirror-like background. Their frosted, sculpted foregrounds give them a special cameo effect. Proof blanks are specially treated, polished and cleaned to ensure high quality strikes. The blanks are then fed into presses fitted with specially polished dies and struck at least twice to ensure sharp relief. The coins are then packaged in a protective lens to showcase and maintain their exceptional finish."

As mentioned by the Mint description, the coins of the set are encased in protective lenses to preserve their finish. One lens contains the four 2013-dated Presidential Dollars, one lens contains the five 2013-dated America the Beautiful Quarters® and the third lens contains the remaining strikes.
