This seems obvious, but I just want to make sure. In looking at the penny, nickel, and later the dollar, are these coins exactly the same in both sets ? Thanks

Correct. Only the denominations made of coin silver until 1964 (the dime, quarter, and half) are silver.

But I believe in the late 90's some sets had 40% silver Dimes , Quarters and Halves .

Silver Proof Sets started again in 1992, and the used coins (dimes, quarters, & half dollars) were made with 90% silver.
The last couple of years the silver was upped to .999% silver.

I believe shug23 is asking if the 'penny' in the regular proof set (let's say 2020) is exactly the same as the 'penny' from the 2020 Silver Proof Set. Any differences?

I personally do not know. I WISH there IS a difference, because I've already gotten the base proof set this year, and would prefer not to have to pay $105 for the silver set and only get four coins that are different than what I already have (ie; I would get three repeats). At least in the Canadian Silver Proof Sets, ALL COINS (even the cent) are made of silver.

I can only guarantee the Cent coin in all Proof sets are NOT Silver.

I do know that the uncirculated set is different than the circulating set/coins.

The olny proof sets that had 40% silver coins were 1968-70 (half dollars only) 1971-74 brown ikes, and bicentenial three coin proof sets. There were never any 40% silver dimes.
