Which would be the best picks?


Friends, I am working on a Type set that needs only 1 modern issue comm. coin in it. I would like to put the best looking detail and artistry coin I can purchase. The set will go to my grandchildren and I don't want a dog coin in that slot. The slot is for $1 coin but the 50c MS70 carries more points.

I do not know which coins of the modern commemorative set are the top picks for their overall beauty but I figured some of you that have full sets or close could come up with a top 5 list.

Let us know your best choices.


Thanks, Rick

I like the Columbus Dollar with the half space shuttle and Columbus sailing ship on the obverse, The 1992 gymnastics half dollar(my daughter loves gymnastics), the community service dollar(the design is based on that of a medal designed by Augustus St Gaudens), the Jackie Robinson Dollar, the Dolley Madison Dollar, the Bald Eagle half, the US Marines Dollar, and the upcoming Medal of Honor Dollar.
