Collectors have always coveted the first and last coins in any coin series, and now you can acquire an amazing array of some of these key coins in American history. Best of all, each coin is individually encased so you can examine it without fear of damage, and each collection comes in a deluxe display case at no extra cost.
First and Last Barber Silver Quarters
The Barber Quarter was first issued in 1892 … and was last made over a century ago in 1916. These are the key coins to any collection, and both are presented in an amazing set that sure to excite even the most seasoned of collectors. The coin was designed by Charles E. Barber – one of the most legendary designers in U.S. Mint history – and both coins were made in 90% silver.
Double Dated Pennies – 1909
On rare occasions, the U.S. Mint ends one coin design in the same year that its replacement design is introduced. This famously happened in 1909, when the last Indian Head Penny was struck … and it was replaced by the first Lincoln Penny later in the year. Since both coins were made for only a few months, they are almost impossible to find today, over 100 years later.
Double Dated Set – Pennies, Nickels, Dimes
This incredible collection includes not just one set of matching first-and-last coins made in the same year … but three stunning sets of first-and-last coins: the last Indian Head Penny and first Lincoln Penny that both bear the same 1909 date … the last Buffalo Nickel and first Jefferson Nickel, both dated 1938 … and the last Barber Dime and first Mercury Dime that were both struck in 90% silver in 1916.
The Last Standing Liberty/First Washington Silver Quarters
The short-lived Standing Liberty Quarter was last made in 1930 … and two years later in 1932 the U.S. Mint introduced the Washington Quarter to coincide with the 200th anniversary of the birth of George Washington. These coins were made in 90% silver and have been out of issue for over 85 years, but this incredible set includes both historic coins!
Double Dated Nickels – 1938
The classic Buffalo Nickel is one of America’s favorite coins, but the last coin was made 80 years ago in 1938. That same year, the U.S. Mint struck the first Jefferson Nickel – but this new coin was not released until October, so each 1938 coin was available for just a few months. This is a rare opportunity to own both coins in a single collection!
Last Morgan & First Peace Silver Dollars
The stunning Morgan Silver Dollar was last made almost a century ago in 1921 – and this exceptional collection features this key final-year coin with its replacement, the Peace Silver Dollar from 1922, the first full year of issue. This is a fabulous set of the “bookend” coins that any collector would be proud to own. Both coins were made in 90% silver.
