Since 2002, the Annual PCGS Set Registry Awards have honored top sets and other significant collections of merit. While the past year has been unlike any other in recent memory, we at PCGS are honored to continue this tradition by announcing the top sets and collections of 2020, and it’s during a year when we’ve seen more Registry Sets than ever, with more than 125,000 sets built by more than 20,000 collectors from around the world. As the PCGS Set Registry, which came online in 2001, marks the start of its third decade on the internet, it remains the favorite platform for numismatists of all levels to build their collections and compete with fellow collectors in the shared pursuit of numismatic greatness.


2020 PLATINUM LEVEL SETS

Platinum is awarded to the currently active sets and collections that have won gold awards for five years in a row and continue to be ranked number one within their respective set composites going into their sixth award winning year.

2020 GOLD LEVEL SETS

Gold is awarded to honor sets that are the best in their category and have been selected by our judging committee to be recognized for outstanding set building. The completeness and quality of each of these sets deserves recognition. Many of these sets have won in the past and some are new recipients of the gold award. Each of the following sets are truly impressive and worthy of the prestige of the gold award.

TOP CLASSIC SETS 1794-1964

Simpson - Lincoln Cents Off-Metal Strikes, Circulation Strikes (1943-1944)
This is a very impressive set of off-metal Lincoln cent strikes! Only missing the elusive 1943-S Bronze, of which only around five are known to exist. One would be hard-pressed to duplicate this set.

Mitchell Spivack (Wondercoin) - Top 100 Modern Coins
Modern coins have definitely seen an influx of interest in the numismatic community over the past several years. Many individuals are realizing that there are some amazing rarities to be found in "the wild." This set comprises a group of coins that start at readily available to nearly impossible. To say that this set is impressive is an understatement.

High Desert - Gold Type Set (1795-1933)
This is another set from High Desert that has held top ranks for the better part of two decades. The state of preservation with a weighted GPA of over 65 is a testament to the collector's dedication and eye. Absolutely worthy of high praise.

High Desert - Silver Type Set (1792-1964)
A gorgeous set of silver coins, this cabinet has been ranked Current Finest and All-Time Finest and was Best of Registry from 2012 through 2019. It is 100% complete with 68 coins and features a 66.42 rating out of a possible 67.77 For comparison's sake, the similar set held by legendary collector DL Hansen is at 65.85.

High Desert - Copper Type Set, Circulation Strikes (1793-1964)
Only two sets have historically reached 100% with an MS GPA. This set, and the Hansen set. High Desert has Hansen beat by over three points! This may seem a small number, but when we are talking this caliber of coins, it's a mountain!

High Desert - Complete U.S. Type Set, Circulation Strikes (1792-1964)
This collection is the Ferrari of US Type Sets. Where many people will attempt this in mixed grades, (easily attainable coins in MS and rarities in low circ grades), High Desert has put together the best of the best. A collection of this magnitude not only requires a vast financial obligation, but more importantly patience and time.

High Desert - Gold Type Set, Circulation Strikes (1795-1933)
This is another show stopper set from High Desert. With incredible rarities such as the 1796 $2 1/2 No Stars, to Wire and Rolled Edge $10 Indians, this set has it all. Another example of how with the right amount of time, financial means, and jumping on opportunities when they appear, world-class sets can be built and enjoyed!

High Desert - Silver Type Set, Circulation Strikes (1792-1964)
Upon first glance, this set obviously seems impressive. Then when you realize you have a high-end 1792 Half Disme and 1796 Quarter involved, it reaches new heights. This set is definitely a feat to be respected.

D.L. Hansen Collection - Complete U.S. Type Set (1792-1964)
At one point or another, many if not most numismatists dream of putting together a basic US Type Set. Mr. Hansen has taken that to the literal next level. Filling this set with absolute swoon-worthy coins. It isn't often that one has the ability to see some of the best-of-the-best coins individually, let alone several in the same collection. The replication of a set of this ilk would be daunting to say the least!

D.L. Hansen Collection - 20th Century Type Set, With Type Variations No Gold (1900-1999)
This is an impressive set that Mr. Hansen completed, knocking High Desert from a highly respectable 18-year top set streak.

High Desert - 20th Century Gold Type Set, Circulation Strikes (1900-1933)
Another High Desert set that has been at the top of its game for nearly two decades. While the majority of this collection is readily available and attainable for most collectors, (with the exception of the Rolled and Wire Edge $10 Indians), the GPA is nearly unreachable. A gold type set of the highest order indeed!

boiler78 - Dollar Type Set (1794-present)
This set was obviously put together by someone whose focus was not only on grade, but also on originality and eye appeal. This is one of those sets that is a true pleasure to click through the photos and see the coins in a state of preservation and beauty that would be a point of pride for the individual coin designers.

Jim O'Neal - Half Dollar Type Set (1794-present)
One of only two complete sets in this composite, and beating the second set - owned by Hansen - by over two points! For a collector of United States Half Dollars, this set is a crown jewel. No doubt that many years of active collecting was involved in the building of this top set!

High Desert - Large Cent Type Set, Circulation Strikes (1793-1857)
With a weighted GPA of almost 67, this set is mind boggling! Most collectors dream of owning a 1793 Chain Cent in any condition. Finding one in XF is an absolute treat, let alone one in mint state! At this grade level and state of preservation, this set will likely be king for a great while longer!

D.L. Hansen Collection - U.S. Coins Complete Basic Set, Circulation Strikes (1792-present)
What can be said about this set that hasn't already? For most numismatists, finally attaining a complete set of any series and at any grade level is a feat. Now, try to complete a full set of US numismatics in TOP conditions! This set contains examples worth several hundred dollars each all the way up to the multi-million-dollar "poster" coins. We are all waiting with anticipation for the completion of this monumental undertaking.

The Black Cat Collection - U.S. Twenty Cents Complete Set, Circulation Strikes and Proof (1875-1878)
The ultimate specialist's set done extraordinarily well. This collection may tackle a small segment, but the consistent quality shown here can only be the result of years of selective searching. Beautiful original toning on most pieces and having the branch mint proof as the cornerstone cements the deal - killer set! This set overtook the Driftwood set for Current and All-Time Finest titles. 100% complete, it has a set rating of 66.23 of a possible 68.13 points. It should be noted that Driftwood had claimed the top spot within the PCGS registry since 2006!

D.L. Hansen Collection - Half Cents with Major Varieties, Circulation Strikes (1793-1857)
Representing the pinnacle of Half Cent collections, this set combines outstanding rarity with impeccable quality.

High Desert - Large Cents with Major Varieties (With the four Ultra Rarities), Circulation Strikes (1793-1814)
Long recognized for its excellent quality, this splendid Large Cent collection was ranked Best of Registry 2013 through 2019 and is a 2014 Gold Award Winner. It is also the Current and All-Time Finest and enjoys a 55.10 set rating against a possible 57.42 points available.

High Desert - Large Cents with Major Varieties, Circulation Strikes (1839-1857)
Representing the late Large Cent dates, this 33-coin collection is 100% complete and ranked #1. With its 67.31 rating out of a possible 68.57 points, it has been recognized as Best of Registry in 2015, and 2017 through 2019.

The Arizona Collection - Large Cents Classic Head Complete Variety Set, Circulation Strikes (1808-1814)
This 100% complete collection ranks #1, which is a challenging feat considering the extreme rarity of numerous varieties in this set, let alone the difficulty of obtaining Classic Head Large Cents in the top grades, regardless of date or die marriage.

Golden State Collection - Large Cents Die Variety Set by Sheldon, Circulation Strikes (1793)
An excellent collection, this 100% complete set ranks #1 and represents the first year of the Official United States Federal cent coinage. All 1793 Cents are extraordinarily rare and coveted, only emphasizing the premier nature of this set.

drtom's - Large Cents Die Variety Set by Newcomb, Circulation Strikes (1816-1839)
This impressive collection requiring 244 coins and offering a finest-possible grade point average of 65.80 is 99.59% complete and boasts a 54.95 point rating. One of the larger registry sets, this cabinet represents the complex middle years of the Large Cent denomination and is amongst the finest sets ever assembled.

Douglas M Wright Jr. - Flying Eagle Cents Complete Variety Set, Circulation Strikes (1856-1858)
An exceptional set by every measure, this set was ranked Best of Registry 2016, 2017, and 2019. It was also the 2018 Gold Award Winner. It is 100% complete with 20 items and is the Current and All-Time Finest, with a 63.33 set rating from a possible 65.90 points available.

The Jasper Mantooth/CCN Indian Set - Indian Cents Basic Set, Circulation Strikes (1859-1909)
Any great Indian Cent collection takes time and effort to assemble. This marvelous set took three years to build. However, patience is a virtue, and this 55-coin collection was well worth the wait. It's 100% complete, has an impressive 68.88 rating, and ranks #1.

The Falcon Collection - Indian Cents with Major Varieties, Proof (1859-1909)
This Indian Cent set encompasses both circulation strikes and proofs, serving as a satisfying survey of this popular type. Ranking #1 and boasting a 69.12 rating, it's 100% complete.

BLUE OCEAN - Lincoln Cents Basic Set, Proof (1950-1958)
The Current Finest and All-Time Finest set also won gold in 2019. This nine-coin set is 100% complete and is deceivingly difficult at this level, ranking 71.70 out of a possible 73.50 points. It ranks just barely ahead of a set by PCGS Set Registry Hall of Fame member Stewart Blay, who won from 2002 through 2018.

The Prestwick Collection - Shield Two Cents with Major Varieties, Proof (1864-1873)
This set is all about absolute top surface quality and color. In these grade ranges, even a single hairline can preclude a coin from receiving the top rating. This set includes many of the finest known examples and blazing Gem Red coins, despite beginning during the time of the Civil War! This set has now been retired and is ranked #2 All-Time Finest behind DL Hansen's set. It is 100% complete and carried a rating of 68.14 out of a possible 69.74 points.

Little Ones III - Three Cent Silvers Complete Variety Set, Circulation Strikes (1851-1872)
Gorgeous toned Gems for the common slots and he/she has the tough varieties, too. Most collectors attempt only one of the two "styles." This set was ranked Best of Registry in 2019 and is the Current and All-Time Finest. It is 96.88% complete of 32 required coins (one other member, "Scarsdale," has the same completion) and has a 59.98 rating of 67.32 possible points available (the other member's set is 59.83).

cross1942 - Liberty Nickels Basic Set, Circulation Strikes (1883-1912) - CAC
Perfect example of a set in which the quality for each coin is superb within the grade (even if they are not finest-known level)... It takes a tremendous amount of time looking at Liberty Nickels (or anything) to be able to pick them that well. This set is ranked the Current and All-Time Finest with 96.97% complete of 33 items and a 59.76 rating out of a possible 68.25 (the next closest member is 36.36% complete and has a 25.66 rating, so not even close). Perfect example of a set in which the quality of each coin is superb within the grade (even if they are not finest-known level). It takes a tremendous amount of time looking at Liberty Nickels (or anything) to be able to pick them that well.

gpeters - Capped Bust Dimes Die Variety Set by John Reich, Circulation Strikes (1809-1837)
This set ranks #1 and #2 Finest (behind the retired Gorman Collection), with a 28.66 rating of a possible 60.27 points. This difficult set is 98.37% complete.

Dimeman - Early Dimes Die Variety Set by John Reich, Circulation Strikes (1796-1837)
Current and All-Time Finest with 81.70% completion of 153 items. Set is rated 20.67 out of a possible 55.20 points. Completing this set is an expensive and challenging task. It is full of beautiful collector coins with original circulated surfaces.

Three Sisters Collection - Draped Bust Quarters Die Variety Set by A.W. Browning, Circulation Strikes (1796-1807)
Claiming the Best of Registry in 2018 and 2019, this 21-coin set is 100% complete and is the Current and All-Time Finest. It is rated 42.87 out of a possible 56.82 points. It's yet another example of how careful focus on a narrow segment yields glorious results. The early quarter series may seem chronologically short, but the wide array of cracking, wearing, and failing dies turn this set into a deep and challenging exercise, but one with great rewards. The many beautiful AU58s in this set highlight the potential of the grade.

Bhnco54 - Capped Bust Half Dollars Prime Die Variety Set by Overton, Circulation Strikes (1807-1836)
Taking on the complete Overton set is one of the most famous, monumental lifetime tasks in U.S. numismatics. The extent of this set's completeness, as well as its focus on attractive coins and active maintenance of provenance (which is highly important in the development of the numismatic community as a collective group of caring custodians sharing common interests and goals), rate it A+. This set is the new current #1 and is 99.33% complete out of a total requirement of 450 coins. This hefty collection has a 54.58 rating out of a possible 64.55 points. The All-Time Finest set is The Link, a four-time Gold Winner, including 2017 through 2019 and Hall of Fame HOF member at 63.20.

Ramblin' Rose 🌹 - Morgan Dollars Thornhead Set, Circulation Strikes (1921-S)
This is a fantastic and educational set to take on! This works its way through the successive states of a single die variety. There are many other areas in which a similar collecting bent could be followed! This set ranked Best of Registry in 2018 and 2019 and is the Current and All-Time Finest. This 100% complete 10-coin set has a 63.43 rating out of a possible 64.70 points.

Knockin on Heaven's Door 🥀 - Morgan Dollars Long Arrow Shaft VAM Set, Circulation Strikes (1878)
This complete set of all the Long Arrows, with nearly every coin as a top pop example, ranked Best of Registry for an incredible eight years (2012-2019) and is the Current and All-Time Finest. It is 100% complete of nine coins and has a 60.32 rating out of 60.84 possible points. The next set in line has a 47.79 rating, so there is a sizeable advantage.

This 274-coin collection is 100% complete and has a 70.91 set rating out of a possible 71.01 -- simply outstanding!
