https://www.coincommunity.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=267762 One thing that first hits you when you look at the set is how visually pleasing the packaging and information booklet are. The red roses and green background look very nice and are very 1990s-esque in my opinion. The coins are also very eye appealing. Both coins have a matte finish (the nickel was specially made to match the silver dollar). I particularly like the reverse of the silver dollar: a beautiful rose surrounded by a rose garland. The nickel has the lowest mintage (25,000) for a nickel since some of the proof Jefferson nickels were made in the early 1940s. The nickel has a nice golden toning on the reverse. Golden reverse toning is a known “issue” for both the 1994 and 1997 sets, though I find this issue to be not bad at all. The series 1995 dollar bill complements the coins well also. I highly recommend this set as it has everything going for it: scarcity (at least for a modern US issue), eye appeal, and great packaging. I’m glad I stumbled across this set!
