I don't actually collect medals, though I do have four or five in my collection which had really caught my eye.

Your can find those silver ones popped out and generally are graded. I think the price is pretty steep on em. I get the set and found out about the bronze ones later and decided it would complement the Philly Set. I can't think of any other medals I have. I had some random ones I've sold to support my ASE addiction. I did have that silver Liberty medal from last year, the bronco one. Man that good version, the high relief, was that every a cool medal!

On the last picture post I did, I should point out that the one picture does show the standard issue ASEs on the left side, the bullion and proof, so that's showing all 1993 issues with an ASE.
I think I'm be able to transfer what I did in Facebook to this site. So far so good anyways. Done for the day, though.

In 1993 mintage for Proofs was 405, 913 out of Philly, Yours is a 1993 Proof, No ?

Forgot to mention this. BTW I am usually up this early to go to work.
My "favorite" topic in the world, mintage and sales figures. NOT! Keeps me awake at night. Sometimes.
From the research, surfing, digging in as much as I can, what I've come up with if the proofs in many, if not all, of these early sets came from the regular proof mintage figures. For these sets that have a coin that was a regular edition counterpart like this set.

Thank you, I see it now. I see it does have to be done within 24hrs though.
Hope to post 1995 later today. The Big One.

I'll do my 1994-1995 sets next.
So a preamble. By the time I'd gotten my 1995 10th Anniversary set, as you would guess I was pretty into ASEs. Leading up to this purchase, I'd been slowly trying to define what I wanted to do. I'd started getting a few sets here and there. The 25th Anniversary, one or two of the 2 coin sets, just randomly. Plus the individual issues. I'd at least found a checklist (I'd mentioned this before and now I remember, the checklist from Liberty Coin).
Along the way with my silver stacking, I'd also managed to add some gold coins, a few St Gauden double eagles and some other pre-33 gold coins. So I decided that the gold I could use towards paying for the 10th Anniversary set, so I started my search with that in mind. As I'd mentioned, I did contact an LCS and he had one idea right away, concerning a guy he deals with a lot. That one fell through (not for sale, his father was the original owner of the set), but he said he did have another shop that he liked to deal with a lot and he thought they might have one. He went ahead and got the set I now own with the thought he'd bust out the ASE for me and keep the gold. That's when I really started really shifting my attitude about breaking up mint sets. Decided I could sell some other coins I didn't want and did in to the cash reserves and make this happen, and the LCS owner was happy I decided to do that.
Well, I'll move on and post the write up I did on 1994-1995 next.

I left off with 1993 and the Philadelphia Set. Showing my 1994 and 1995 bullion strikes and again the normal proof strikes were minted in Philadelphia starting in 1993. In 1994 they only had the bullion and Philadelphia proof coins.
In 1995 was the first series anniversary set. It still strikes me as odd that they chose 1995 to be the 10th anniversary since 1986 was the first year.
This was the first time an ASE was minted at the West Point mint, and is also the first time there were two different mints making proof ASEs in the same year.
So am showing the 1995 10th Anniversary Eagle set, also a box the mint used to get the coins in the hands of the purchaser when they ran short of the the OGP the coins were to come in.
Mintage of the set was 30,125. Although the 1995W ASE has been replaced as the lowest mintage ASE by the 2019S ERP, I believe the 95W will remain the "king" of the ASEs, because the only way to get it was to buy the whole set with the 4 AGEs.

I'm unsure what the "full stop" in your comments mean.
As far as getting the set graded, that's something a lot of people would do
I really don't think that's ever happening while I own it. We're all just caretakers of everything we own, you can't take it with you.
I know what the ramifications are if the ASE comes back a 70. I have one acquaintance who is a bit of a high roller and has submitted over 5 perfect-looking 95W ASEs and none have been 70s. Mr high roller finally bought one. But to explain again, I love my ASEs. The collection I have made you couldn't ever duplicate in graded form (I could send them all in, but I'd never get the designations). So I have resigned to the fact that I'll just have the whole collection in OGP form. Plus I think it makes the collection, what I describe as soulless. The slabs just take detract and make the coins all the same. Some of this OGP is so cool. I know not so much with the clamshell individual proofs and Uncirculated, but the special issue and sets.

Going to soldier on with my collection, 1996-1997. I will need to add I think just one more set that isn't in the pictures I took. It's one I found out about a little bit later, after posting this. I don't think I have anything more to add than what I'm going to post here:
Ok going to tackle 1996 & 1997 tonight.
1996. Other than the bullion ASE being the lowest production bullion, not much to tell. 3.6 million. Minted in San Francisco. The proof was Philadelphia. That's all there was in 1996. I'd rather not get in to all the reasonings like a history book.
In 1997 it was the same deal for the bullion and proof.
The mint decided to start making platinum coins, both bullion and proof.
As a commemorative for the inaugural year, I give you the 1997 Impressions of Liberty set.
1oz American Platinum Eagle, 1oz American Gold Eagle, and an ASE, all in proof.
For us ASE people, it is just a regular Philadelphia proof ASE, just like the one in the clamshell, nothing special like the 1995W. Same situation for the other 2 coins. The box, I would say, it is the nicest OGP I've seen.
One weird thing is the coins aren't really held in place very well, they'll slide out of the shallow divots they provide for the coins pretty readily.
Now here is the kicker. Just in the last week or two people have commented about the 2019S ERP being the first US Mint coin with a serial numbered COA. Uh uh, boys and girls. You're looking at it right here. Serial number on the COA and matching number on the OGP box. And that little thing about the COA being signed on the first 100 2019S ERP? These are ALL signed by the mint director Philip Diehl. Talk about writer's cramp! Limited to 5000, and they didn't even make that many, I'd have to look up how many they made.
Box also came in that fancy velvet bag with the embroidery and tasseled strings. The thing is fancy!
Really a beautiful set you just don't hear all that much about.
The Platinum eagle is a $100 denomination coin and is America's highest denomination coin.

Next is a more unusual and rare set produced by The Royal Mint. My set has no COA, but I am working on rectifying that. But decided to go ahead and post what I have and a scan of both sides of another collectors COA. This is just absolutely hens teeth rare. Here is article I have already written:
Discovered a non-US Mint set with an ASE in it. My luck is I'll start discovering sets from Mexico or Australia or God knows where with ASEs in them, lol. 1997 Symbols of Freedom from The Royal Mint.
Limited to 1,500 sets
Didn't come with a COA for the set, just one for the UK coin.
That coin is a silver 1. The RM says the silver coin is limited to 30,000, the info I have on it is 20,000 in this form (proof silver) and an additional 10,000 in "Piedfort", which is a thicker heavier version of the same coin. This is the only set (I know of) where the RM coin isn't a Britannia.
I did get a scan of the COA but it isn't very good quality, I'll see if I can make a halfway decent copy of it, attached the scans.
