The gold commemorative set includes nine gold dollars, two quarter eagles, and two $50 gold pieces. Because of the prohibitive cost of the $50 pieces, the set is usually collected as an 11-piece set comprising the smaller issues. The 1905 Lewis & Clark gold dollar and the Sesqui $2 1/2 are usually the toughest coins to find in gem (MS65/better) condition.

This series has proved to be extremely popular with collectors, as it is one of the few gold series that can be completed in gem condition. Several of the gold commemoratives were issued in proof.
