I started this set back in 1999 when I bought my very first Saint-Gaudens double eagle (I think it was the 1924 in MS-62 in this set). It had been a lifelong dream to own just one of these beautiful coins, but now after several years, I am actually seriously pursuing a set! I don't know if I'll ever complete it or come close, but it's certainly a fun trip along the way. More than anything, I am a collector of these coins, so I am creating this set to share it with other collectors (not just Saint or gold collectors, but everyone!) You will likely see a number of coins that seem to make little sense to include in a registry designed for competition, but I am not trying to garner points, just share what I think are some of the most beautiful coins ever produced by the U.S. Mint. I hope you enjoy my set, and maybe even learn something along the way!
