Neat...That is frigging awesome....
Nobody. From what I understand, they were struck in the early 90s using die press #1 as a promotional draw to get people to visit the museum. They were done in 1oz, 2oz & copper as far as I know but I still need/want to do research on them and the event to pin down exact details.
I saw this word on your other thread also
Cutesy way of saying "new pickup"
It's numismatic shorthand for New Purchase
I am looking forward to a cool story.
From what I remember of the story (I haven't done any looking into it yet) they were made as a sort of advertising to get people to visit the CC Mint Museum using die press #1 with authentic cancelled dies from the collection. From what I understand they were made in 1oz silver, 2oz silver & copper and/or brass. I'd also like to find the mintage figures of each type.
That's the real story.
If you don't know, look it up... it's well documented.
