Linda's Lil Gold Hoard - 2nd2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017
The last challenges have been 1946, including the most difficult 1944. The set is now complete with the key to the series 1944 being the last coin added to complete the set. The 1944 and 1946 were only recently found and probably because of the surge in the price of gold. The 1944 with a mintage of only 10,000 is the key to the set.
Interest in these coins was started in 1977 when the Restrike coins could have been found for less than $10.00 each. Today the melt value for these little pieces of gold is still less than $75.00 with gold above $1500 an ounce. You can think of these little gold treasures as probably the most affordable gold set to complete.
These 13mm charmers are the same size as the USA $1.00 coin. They are also just a bit lighter with the USA $1.00 containing 0.04837 ounces of pure gold and the Mexico Dos Peso containing 0.04820 ounces of pure gold.
This group was sent to PCGS to have a pedigree added. In thanks for all the support from my wife Linda I have selected "Linda's Lil Gold Hoard" to be printed on the labels.
