Here's the second of three segments from Steve Roach on this years Coin & Chronicles set:

One of the surprises among the new U.S. Mint products in 2015 was the 2015 Harry S. Truman Coin & Chronicles set. It was one of four Presidential dollar special sets made available this year. The sets each included a Reverse Proof Presidential dollar produced at the Philadelphia Mint, a silver Presidential medal, a presidential stamp and a booklet about the president. The Truman set’s limited production of just 17,000 sets coupled with a household ordering limit of five sets per household resulted in a fast sellout when the set was offered on June 30 at an issue price of $57.95. 

The Medal:
$127.60

The Price:
2015 Harry S. Truman Silver Medal from Coin & Chronicles Set, PCGS MS-70

The Story: 
Presumably the key draw to the Coin & Chronicles sets is that they contain a Reverse Proof Presidential dollar that is only available as part of the set.

However, the accompanying 1-ounce silver medals are handsome and interesting in their own right, and those graded Mint State 70 have seen solid prices in the secondary market.

At a Nov. 8 GreatCollections auction a PCGS First Strike Truman medal graded MS-70 sold for $127.60. That price was reasonable as similarly graded examples have sold for more than $200 in recent eBay auctions. For comparison, ungraded medals sell at the $40 to $50 level while those certified MS-69 have brought between $50 and $75.
