Set Description

For the person who loves coinage designs and history, type collecting offers the ultimate experience in both. I am astonished by the beauty and diversity of the coins issued over the course of our nation’s history. Coins that are well preserved are especially pleasing to look at because they combine both aesthetic and artistic beauty.<br /><br />I have often wondered how people spent the coins in my collection and why the mint-state coins never circulated. This curiosity about my coins has fueled an interest in me to investigate and tell the story behind each of the coins in this set. Every one of these coins, issued during the 20th century, has a unique story of its own. Where facts and history cross over into earlier centuries, I cover those to get a broader perspective on my coin’s significance. Some of my coins have stories within their designs, while others are within their varieties and mintages. Even so, others are representative of our nation’s history and values. I cannot hope to capture all there is to tell of a coin’s history within this set... However, I can tell a portion of that story from my perspective based on what interests me most about a particular coin. I hope you enjoy reading my coin descriptions, and that you learn something about your coins that you may have not known before. Where applicable, I will note coins of personal significance to me.<br /><br />From a collecting standpoint, this set allows me to collect high-grade coins for relatively little cost. That said I have chosen to populate this set with coins that range primarily from MS-61 to MS-67. These coins though not the top coins within their certified populations are, nonetheless, handsome and attractive. I have carefully selected the coins in this set based on a balance between value and eye appeal. Please enjoy the photographs of each of the coins in my set, just as I do.<br /><br />Lastly, from a personal perspective this “20th Century Type Set” helps me to achieve my goal of collecting one example of every major circulating non-gold coin the United States has minted during the 19th and 20th centuries.
