In 1868 mint director Henry Linderman ordered the mint to produce two complete sets of our nations coinage for presentation to the Bank of England and the government of France. Two days later he increased the order to four sets. Today there are three complete cased sets known to exist.


1) The Garrett collection set sold by Bowers and Ruddy in 1979

2) A set from the estate of treasury secretary Hugh McCulloch now on display at

the Newman money museum in St Louis.

3) This set previous provenance unkonwn.


Here is the Double Eagle from the set.
