How about creating a cultural set for the four Mexican small pieces that are part of the 2011 cultural set?   There were only four coins minted (2000 each).  The obverse features the national arms of Mexico. The reverses differ on all four coins but commemorate the heritage of Mexico.  One of the coins features various motives including a pyramid, a church and an aqueduct, along with a cacao pod and communion wafers.  Each is comprised of 1.25 grams of gold with a purity of 75%.  Another motive features main trades during its colony years, including from Europe a horse, wheat, religion and metal money; form Mexico - cacao, corn, maguey, and the gold trade.  A third motive features a man holding a cacao bean.  The last one features two profile heads (a native Mexican and a Spanish conquistador), along with a fruiting cactus and European wheat (not featured below).

Sounds like a great custom set, you could do a nice write up to explain the origins of the set.

Hello and thanks for your interest. This type of set is best represented in a Custom NGC Registry set.

Much appreciated for your consideration.  I wanted to ask because NGC created a custom set for the Meixco 2 onza fusion proof collection from 1992 in which only five coins existed.  And these coins are more easily collected in my opinion because they are smaller in value and mintages are high enough.  Thank you.
