Basic U.S. Coin Design Set—Early $10 Gold
After hitting 100% completion of my basic, no-gold set, I figured the Basic US Coin Design Set would be the perfect next set as I already had a few of the gold pieces. I figured some of the early gold would be challenging, but I just did my research on the $10 early gold (1795-1804) and it’s impossible to get one under $10k. Each of the other coins can be acquired with a budget of $2500 or less, so it’s surprising that there is such a significant outlier in the set requirements. I’m simultaneously disappointed by that, and excited about the prospect of someday acquiring a collection-defining coin.
Nothing is as expensive as free money.
