    Complete Date Set of All Four
    1855 SSCA Relic Gold Medal '1855 Kellogg' Fifties
    Gem Uncirculated

    1855 $50 SSCA Relic Gold Medal "1855 Kellogg & Co. Fifty" Gem Uncirculated PCGS. A complete set of all four SSCA fifty dollar gold relic medals. Business strikes were only struck on four dates: August 26, 2001, September 3, 2001, September 7, 2001, and September 12, 2001. Thus, a complete set is relatively simple to assemble of each date of issue, unlike the 24 different dates of proof strikings. The mintage of business strikes is also significantly lower; in fact, almost one-tenth of the mintage for proofs. The 8/26 striking had an output of 100 pieces, the 9/3 striking had the lowest of the series with only 93 pieces struck, the 9/7 production run was only 99 coins, and the 9/12 strikings amounted to 200 pieces. While these pieces are graded Gem Uncirculated, they are significantly finer than one would expect for an MS65 coin. Smooth, satiny mint luster covers each coin and the set has a uniform yellow-gold color.
