The discovery of gold in California in 1848 brought the eyes of America on the rapidly-growing town of San Francisco. There, in 1854, the United States opened a new Mint to handle the vast quantities of gold bullion that needed conversion into coins. In subsequent years, the mint added copper, nickel, and silver coins to its repertoire until it soon became one of the most important Mints in the system. This set contains one of each of all the hundreds of coins produced at the San Francisco Mint from 1854 until today. Included among these coins are some incredibly rare ones that make it virtually impossible to complete the set: 1854-S $2.50, the unique 1870-S $3, the 1854-S $5, and the 1873-S Silver Dollar (gotcha - none were ever made). There are numerous other rarities, such as the 1870-S Silver Dollar. However, there are so many collectible coins in this set that a high level of completion can be achieved. There is a lifetime of enjoyment built into this remarkable collection.
