United States of America, 1976 Bi-centennial 3-coin Silver Proof Set

In 1976 the United States celebrated her bicentennial (200th anniversary) of freedom. Of course that freedom was from us, but that is another story. To celebrate this historic event they gave three of their coins a total make over, the Dollar, Half Dollar and Quarter Dollar. They issued these coins in cupro-nickel for circulation. In Proof cupro-nickel for collectors and a VIP 3 coin proof set in Silver. It is that silver proof set that we are now offering you. It has been quite some time since we were last able to offer this important one year proof set in Silver. Each of the three coins has two dates 1776 and 1976. The Dollar has Ike and the reverse has the Liberty Bell and the Earth. The Kennedy 50 Cents or half dollar has Independence Hall on the reverse. Finally the Washington 25c or quarter has a drummer boy from the War of Independence. This is a handsome one year Silver Proof Set and even the case is rather outstanding. We managed to get just under 90 of these special proof sets, when they are gone it may well be a couple more years until we are able to offer them again.

Picture of Edward VII, Complete Penny Set

Edward VII, Complete Penny Set

It has been quite some time since we were last able to offer you the complete date set of King Edward VII Pennies. To be honest, there just are not all that many around to make up collections. They were saved by a friend, who took the time to sort the hoard of Edward VII Pennies that he had accumulated over 20 years by date. Then he made complete date collections for us. Not only did he make date collections, but at a price that allows us to offer them to you at a special price. You get one of each date of King Edward VII Penny struck from 1902-1910. That means, 1902, 1903, 1904, 1905, 1906, 1907, 1908, 1909 and 1910. Every coin is over 100 years old and while circulated, they are still in very reasonable condition. You get all 9 different dates, which normally would sell for £24.50 as individual coins.
