Known as the highest quality of coin a mint produces, proof coins can be described as beautiful works of art. Each coin is struck twice with highly polished dies which have been carefully prepared prior to striking, less pressure is used than a standard minting to preserve the final detail of the coin. The second strike is to give the coin more definition and deepen the relief.
With all the attention to detail going into the creation of proof coins, there aren't as many produced, meaning these coins are often once in a lifetime.
