    An extremely rare set, each coin being one of only 100 pieces originally minted, and many if not most of the sets having been broken up over the years. As the near-perfect NGC grades suggest, each coin remains carefully preserved with exceptional cameo features and no mentionable flaws. Accompanying the coins are the original box of issue, the COAs with matching serial numbers, as well as the story booklet and replica compass. Together, these make a wonderful showpiece that for modern issues is undeniably difficult to surpass.
