11-Piece U.S. Early Gold Commemoratives

Completing an 11-piece United States gold commemorative set is an achievable project for many collectors. The 11-piece set includes nine gold $1 and two $2.5 quarter eagles. The $1 and $2.5 gold Panama-Pacific examples are a perennial favorite of collectors. The 1904 and 1905 Lewis & Clark gold dollars along with the American Independence Sesquicentennial $2.5 quarter eagle are considered to be the more challenging to locate in gem condition. This is a set that has been historically popular with collectors, as one of the few United States gold series that can be accomplished in gem condition. As with the United States silver commemorative type set, scoring weights were set by using PCGS MS66 populations as compared to the Sheldon rarity scale. The two Lewis & Clark entries are the no question key dates in superb gem. Have fun with this United States gold set in the Open Set Registry.

Rating: The weighted average of all coin grades (i.e. aggregated sum of each coin grade + CAC premium multiplied by its rarity factor divided by the sum of all rarity factors). Missing coins are included and assigned a grade of 0. This metric is the basis for order rank.

Complete: The number of coin entries divided by the total number of coins in the Set.

Weighted Grade: The weighted average of all coin grades (see calculation above), but excluding any missing coins.

%: The ratio of coins certified by CAC (either green or gold sticker). Calculated as the number of CAC coins divided by the total number of entered coins.

Rarity Factor: The rarity assessment for each date/variety uses the Sheldon scale of R1 through R8 with a R1 weight being the most common while an R8 weight being the most difficult to locate. Rarity estimates are by Gerry Fortin.
