What should a 21st Century type set look like?

OverdateOverdate Posts: 6,936 ✭✭✭✭✭

If it's one of each design, a 21st Century type set of circulating coinage would be top-heavy with quarters and dollar coins. Would it be more logical to just include a single representative state quarter, ATB quarter, presidential dollar and Native American dollar?

    It depends on your goals but having a single coin for each series would be a reasonable way to go.

    Dansco albums do something similar for commemorative dollars and half dollars. Sometimes they just have one hole and sometimes they have a few (e.g. 4 commemorative half dollar holes).

    It is totally up to the collector. It could be made as large or small as one desires. It can be abbreviated for cost or space, or expansive for those who must have everything. I will say though... likely none of us will live to complete a 21st century set... perhaps our great grandkids will....Cheers, RickO

    The NGC type coin registry takes the one type coin for the series approach. Therefore that is only one State Quarter, one America the Beautiful Quarter, one Sacagawea Dollar and one Presidential Dollar required.

    Keeping up with these new coins is easy. All you have to do is buy an annual Proof or mint set.

    I would guess there are some teenagers on the forum . . .

    @Overdate... You are likely correct.... however, it is a long way to 2100.....I even wonder if this forum will be around then... :D:D Yeah... it will, but probably with five more software changes.... likely accessed through a chip in our brain.... ;) Cheers, RickO

    Especially if you include all of the commemorative and bullion coins in the type set. That would cost a fortune.

    Like the people have said above, it depends on what kind of collector you are and how you want to build the set.

    If it is, here are some likely threads:

    Gold just passed $25,000!
    Why have all the 20th Century Zincolns disappeared?
    Anyone remember the Internet?
    Nice toning on this 2094 Rhodium Eagle.
    Found a clad dime in an old collection today, what’s the melt value?
    The 2017 Enhanced Uncirculated Set hasn’t sold out YET??
    If my collection is worth less than $1,000,000 do I need a safe deposit box?
    Why have all the First Spouse coins been melted?
    Is 2064 a good cutoff date for moderns?
