I think they were issued in shrink wrap (some I have that way)

That's correct. The First Day Coin Covers all come in shrink wrap inside a white cardboard envelope.

I really enjoy these FDCCs and the others that the US Mint has produced. I have all of the Statehood Quarters FDCCs and most of the 2009 US Territories FDCCs, but two of those have been eluding me for years.

If you're interested, here's a link to a thread on how I store mine as well as general discussion on FDCCs/PNCs:

For your consideration, the 2007 American Legacy Collection.

The 3rd of 4 consecutive annual issues beginning in 2005, the 2007 issue below improves upon the packaging significantly over the 2005 edition I posted yesterday. Product code: AL1. It originally sold for $135 and was limited to 50,000 sets. It contains the following 16 coins:

- 2007-S Lincoln Memorial cent
- 2007-S Jefferson 1800 Nickel
- 2007-S Roosevelt dime
- 2007-S Montana, Washington, Idaho, Wyoming, Utah Quarters (5)
- 2007-S Kennedy half dollar
- 2007-S Sacagawea dollar
- 2007-S Washington, J. Adams, Jefferson, Madison Presidential dollars (4)
- 2007-P Jamestown 400th Anniversary Silver Dollar (proof)
- 2007-P Little Rock Central High School Desegregation Silver Dollar (proof)

The packaging is large at 11.5"H x 12.5"W x 1.5"D. It is similar in format to the 2005 edition with a bifold cover that opens to reveal the coins in slabs and capsules on a flocked mount. The descriptions and background/history of the commemoratives are on the inside of the bifold covers, which have magnetic catches to keep them closed. The packaging has a kickstand built in to display on a flat surface like a picture frame, and the COA is stored in a pocket inside the kickstand. The entire package is protected by a dust sleeve. On to the photos...

Assembled package in the dust cover:

Thanks for looking!
Rest in Peace

Up next, the 2013 Theodore Roosevelt Coin and Chronicles Set. Product Code TR0 and originally retailed for $57.95 with no product or ordering limits. The package is compact at 5"W x 6.625"H x 1.25"D. It contains a portrait of Theodore Roosevelt, a booklet with history and information about Theodore Roosevelt, a Theodore Roosevelt Presidential dollar (proof), a Bald Eagle Bronze Medal from the National Wildlife Refuge System Centennial Medal Series, and a .999 fine silver version of the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Medal.


The assembled set displaying the white slip cover:


Slip cover removed:


The "book" opened, displaying the two medals on the right.


The "book" opened, displaying both left and right. The Theodore Roosevelt Presidential dollar is on the left.


The set deconstructed. The left side has a flap hinged at the top so you can flip it up to see the back of the Presidential dollar and the portrait of Teddy. I've removed the booklet with historical information that fits behind the silver dollar and brass medal, top right.


The back of the book. COA is printed on the back cover:

Trying to get some group pictures of my Prestige sets is much harder than I thought. Of course me not being very
good at operating my camera .. must have a lot to do with it.

Prestige sets were issued 1986 - 1997. The 1996 and 1997
seem to be the highest priced ones.

I have from 86 - 93
1986 Statue of Liberty Half and Dollar
1987 Constitution Dollar
1988 Olympic Dollar
1989 Congressional Half and Dollar
1990 Eisenhower dollar
1991 Mt Rushmore Half and Dollar
1992 Olympic Half and Dollar
1993 Bill of Rights Half and Dollar

I agree with you, CopperCastle. The Mint did a great job on this one.

Alrighty. Let's move on to the 2013 Limited Edition Silver Proof Set, the second annual release of this product. Some folks were not pleased with this set due to the price and the quality of packaging. Product code LS2. It originally sold for $139.95 and cointains (ahem) 2.33 ounces of silver in the following 8 proof coins (unfortunately none of which are exclusive to the set):

2013-S Roosevelt dime
2013-S Kennedy half dollar
2013-S White Mountain Quarter
2013-S Perry's Victory (PA) Quarter
2013-S Great Basin () Quarter
2013-S Fort McHenry (MD) Quarter
2013-S Mount Rushmore (SD) Quarter
2013-S Kennedy half dollar
2013-W American Silver Eagle (.999 Ag)


Assembled set with slip cover:


Next we have the slip cover removed (left) and the box top also removed (top). They all look very similar.


The set, removed from its box. The top flap is hinged a the top of the set and here it's opened, showing the coins and the COA along with a little printed square telling the buyer not to send it back if there are smudges on the capsules. I have not removed the protective plastic film from the coin slab so it looks hazy.


Close-up of the coins (again plastic protective film is still on the slab):

So let's now take a look at the 2014 50th Anniversary Kennedy half dollar Gold Proof Coin (K15), the first gold half-dollar ever issued by the U.S. Mint:

Among 6 other coins (in various finishes and compositions), this 2014 3/4 oz gold (.999) proof release commemorates the 50th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy by the gunman Lee Harvey Oswald, who was later himself murdered by Jack Ruby in the basement of a Dallas courthouse.

While all Kennedy halves released this year were beautiful, this coin is the creme de la creme. The dual-dated (1964-2004) portrait of Kennedy on the coin is the same as the 1964 obverse. This coin originally had no product limit, but later a mintage maximum of 75,000 was announced and still has not sold out as of 2/25/2015.

In my opinion (if you could not already tell) this coin is spectacular and the wooden box is elegant and appropriate for such a piece. The case appears to be heavily stained solid oak. If it's veneered, it's well done.

The assembled product:


Slip case (top) and box top removed (bottom)


Close-up of wooden box:


Wooden box opened; coin insert propped up. COA and padding displayed in front.


Close-up of this resplendent coin. The U.S. Mint outdid itself with this coin. Bravo!

I love that coin. Would have been nice to have one. If only gold were, you know, cheaper.
