The Fifty-State Bicentennial Medal Collection - Proof Set-52 oz Sterling Silver! It contains 50 state medals in proof condition- encased in acrylic and enclosed within a book. The design of the medals were from 50 different award-winning artists (one per state).
There are five pages of 10 coins each-each separated by a double page paper insert. Each coin weighs 1.0416 Troy Ounces of Solid Sterling Silver for a total of 52.08 Troy Ounces.
There were 32,760 of these sets minted. This was made for my Great Aunt Marguerite H. Farris who was a huge collector of coins, buttons and many other things. She lived to be 102 and was an amazing lady. Condition of the coins are still mint as you can see.The book itself and paper dividers show some age- mainly the covers of the book and paper inserts... The pages the coins are inserted into look great. Also included is the small companion book that describes in detail each state's medal and the artists behind them.
