This set contains every denomination within the Colonial type coins issued by Massachusetts, Maryland, New Jersey, and Virginia prior to 1776. From the crude designs of the New England and Willow Tree denominations to the superb quality of the Virginia "Penny" and "Shilling," this set offers some of the most interesting coins in American numismatics. There are a couple of extremely rare coins in this set (including the unique New England Threepence), so our hats go off to anyone who rises to the challenge.

Notes: This set has bonuses. Please see the Set Composition for a listing.
