This set is perfect for the person who loves early American coins and tokens. We’ve taken the Design Set and expanded it to include all the different dates in the Machin’s Mills series, all denominations of the Chalmers silver coins, and all dates of the Nova Constellatio copper coins. Despite the increase in the number of coins required to complete this set, the degree of difficulty is not much greater and there are actually more opportunities for collectors to excel. There are plenty of affordable coins in this set, not to mention some great, historic design types.

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