This short article presents a photo overview of the Ronald Reagan Coin & Chronicles Set with its reverse proof Presidential $1 Coin, bronze medal, and anniversary proof American Silver Eagle.
Released on Oct. 11 for $68.95, the set is the last in the series. Like others, its most appealing collectible is the exclusive reverse proof dollar. The medal is an alluring piece. It would have been fantastic in silver. Silver Eagles are always popular, and proofs are stunning, but the anniversary edition in this set has less impact because it’s also available separately for $53.95.
Sales of the sets through their first 13 days reached 28,083, or 18.7% of the allotted 150,000. Last year’s sets, honoring Truman, Eisenhower, JFK and LBJ, had smaller limits that ranged from 17,000 to 50,000. Most of them sold out within a few minutes or hours of their release. They also have an exclusive reverse proof $1 coin, and they have medals — but they’re in 99.9% pure silver instead of bronze. In two more differences, last year’s sets didn’t have an American Silver Eagle but they did include commemorative presidential stamps.
