To commemorate the centennial of Abraham Lincoln's birth, the first new cent design in fifty years was introduced to the American public in August, 1909. The first issues contained the designer's initials (VDB) at the bottom of the reverse, resulting in no fewer than six cents in this year's Mint Set. Of course, the storied 1909-S VDB cent is a major key, but the last Quarters and Halves from the New Orleans Mint are also scarce, particularly in high grade. Eleven gold coins were struck in 1909 and among them is one of the great 20th century rarities, the 1909-O Half Eagle. As the last (and only) Indian Half Eagle struck in New Orleans, it enjoys very strong demand from collectors. Gem specimens have sold in excess of half a million dollars! Another tough gold coin will be the 1909-D $20, which will run into the low six-figures in top grade.

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