Past Coin and Chronicles sets have caused a stir

Don't be surprised if the set featuring the Reverse Proof Reagan dollar flies off the shelves. 

Previous Coin and Chronicles sets have been very popular with U.S. Mint customers, and have also been responsible for some serious U.S. Mint website problems.

OPINION: Reverse Proof coins are good for the hobby
