1820 Mint Set with Gold
1820 was a productive year at the mint, for each of the four copper and silver denominations was minted in adequate quantity, although the Half Dollar came up a little shy of average. Nevertheless, all the 1820 issues are more or less "common" for the type, and completing this set should require no extraordinary effort or means. Of course, if the gold is included, the ante needs to be raised, as all Capped Head Left Half Eagles from 1813-1834 are both rare and costly. Given that, the 1820 is among the more "affordable" for the type and given a bit of patience, you might find a nice AU for under $15,000. Not chump change by any means, but as this type goes, a bargain.
