This is listed on the mint's web sight as an issue in the fall. How is this different from the already released silver proof set for this year?

Past LES sets included only the silver coins + an American Silver Eagle. They didn't include the non-silver coins. The 2018 set will probably be like this as well.

BTW, because of that included Ag ASE the previously announced issue price for this set is $144.95 versus the Ag Proof Set price of $49.95. So, you're paying $95 for the ASE and packaging (and not getting the $1.06 of non-silver coins as well).

You only get one proof ASE in the set, not both the S and W mints. I guess it will include the S mint version.

Assuming that the S mint proof ASE is the same price (but I haven't seen an announced price for it) as the W mint ASE, then you could get the Ag Proof Set and both the S and W mint proof ASEs for $49.95 + $55.95 + $55.95 = $161.85. Only $16.90 more than the Ag LES set, about the price of an additional ounce of Ag and you would get the proof Sacagawea dollar, Jefferson nickel and Lincoln Cent. Might be a better deal if you're interested in the coins versus having the LES set.

It includes the ASE and does not include the non-silver coins (cent, nickel, dollar).

I won't be buying the LESPS this year... the only reason I bought last year was for the S-Proof ASE which I missed in the Congratulations set, like a dummy.

Don't get me wrong, it IS a good-looking set but the cost is difficult to justify. If it came in a wooden case, I might think twice.

That might actually justify the premium price.

According to a recent Coin News article, the price for the 2018-S Proof ASE will be the same as the 2018-W Proof ASE - $55.95.
