This is the grand-daddy of all Pattern sets, complete from A to Z, from 1792 to the present. Included are true patterns, die trials, a few restrikes, and even coins that may have been struck outside of the Mint. This set includes famous rarities such as all of the 1792 Patterns, Stellas, Amazonian Patterns, Gobrecht Dollars and even a lot of lesser known coins that are unique and extremely rare. Patterns in gold, silver, copper, and every possible alloy. Every denomination. Designs that look like the ones that were adopted; others that never had a chance. In reality, this set is the background of American coinage, giving us a behind-the-scenes view of contemporary designs, the artists, and the judges. What a beautiful set! What a challenge!

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