Trace the rise and fall of gold in America with this historic, 81 coin date set -- from the heady days of the California Gold Rush to Presidential Franklin Roosevelt’s Executive Order ending private ownership of gold. This set includes the complete run of the $20 gold denomination, with examples from both the Liberty Head and the Saint-Gaudens types. Common dates are weighted the same as rare dates, making it easy to obtain the majority of the years. However, a few tough dates, like 1886, 1921, and 1929-1932, require a level of commitment that will be rewarded with a collection of great beauty and value. A lot happened while these impressive hunks of glittering gold were being made -- the Civil War, the Industrial Revolution, World War I, the Roaring Twenties, and the Great Depression. Every coin in this set has a story to tell.
