This classic 5-coin set features some of the most famous designs to ever grace United States coinage during the first half of the 20th century. Each set includes one Indian Head cent, Buffalo nickel, Mercury dime, Standing Liberty quarter, Walking Liberty half dollar, and Peace silver dollar minted between 1900 and 1947. They span an era that witnessed two World Wars, the Roaring Twenties, the Great Depression, and the entirety of Prohibition. More than 70 to 120 years after their last mintage, these coins continue to be among the most beloved coins in American history. The coins for this special offer were hand-selected by professional numismatists after screening thousands of collectible coins for quality and eye-appeal. Each coin is housed in an airtight capsule and the set is presented in a luxurious, plush-lined wood box with embossed metallic gold lettering, piano-black finish, and certificate of authenticity. The coins are unconditionally guaranteed to be genuine and will match the quality of the ones shown. If you are interested in building a collection, consider adding other great selections from the Relics of a Bygone Era Series to compliment your purchase, including the Late 19th and Early 20th Century Type Set.

About the Indian Head Cent:
In the first half of the 18th century, one-cent coins were large, clunky copper pieces nearly the size of a modern half dollar. By 1856, the cost of producing these copper coins rose so high that the U.S. mint was forced to significantly reduce the size of the one-cent coin. On May 25th, 1857 the mint debuted a new small diameter cent, the Flying Eagle cent, which was the same size as our modern-day Lincoln cent. However, due to difficulties in production and issues with strike quality, this new cent was quickly abandoned and replaced by the Indian Head cent, which was minted through 1909. The obverse of the Indian Head cent features Lady Liberty wearing a Native American war bonnet— regarded by the public at the time as a decidedly unusual headdress for a female figure of otherwise neoclassical Greek form. The reverse originally featured an olive wreath, which was later changed to a wreath of oak and other leaves with a shield at the apex. Indian cents remained in circulation through the 1940s until increasing value and interest among coin collectors rendered them scarce by 1950.
