I just received in the mail my order for the US Mint’s Lincoln Coin & Chronicles set. I must say, it is absolutely beautifully done. The Set contains a silver dollar of Lincoln (first time I think he has been on a silver dollar? not sure – perhaps a coin afficionado can help out?). It also contains the 4 pennies minted this year chronicling Lincoln’s life.
The case is beautiful too – bound, classic look with the Gettysburg Address written 0n the inside – the last 45 words are also engraved on the back of the coin!
For those of you that love history and/or collect coins, this is a beauty. Apparently though, it sold out the next day:(. If you can find a dealer with a copy, buy it – it was $55 – and definitely worth it. Here is a link to the product of which they only made 50,000:
