2015 Coin and Chronicles set from the US Mint
In 2015 legislation was passed to produce a special run of Presidential dollars in Reverse Proof, issued in a special set with a presidential medal and postage stamp. These special sets are called, "Coin and Chronicle" sets and are very limited in mintage - only 17,000 sets were produced, and all of them sold out at the mint inside of a single hour.
The Truman reverse proof coin was minted at the Philadelphia Mint and bears the 'P' mint mark. It carries the same design and composition as the proof and mint state versions of the issue, but the surface treatment on this coin is in reverse proof, meaning that the fields are frosted and the raised areas of the design are mirror shiny like a proof coin's fields normally are. This is the very first such Presidential Dollar, and three more are slated for release some time during 2015.
The silver medal is also produced at the Philadelphia Mint, but does not have a mint mark. This medal is minted in .999 fine silver and is 33.35 mm in diameter (1.3125 inches). It is a smaller replica of the bronze medal design.
The postage stamp in the set is a 1973 issue bearing the likeness of the 33rd President of the United States, Harry S. Truman. It is in unused condition, as issued by the United States Postal Service.
Harry S. Truman
Harry S. Truman served as the 33rd President of the United States. He was the final Vice President of Franklin Delano Roosevelt when he began his final term in 1944, and succeeded Roosevelt to the Presidency when he died in office in 1945. Truman narrowly beat Republican nominee Thomas E. Dewey in the election of 1948 and served one full term as President. Truman was President during the end of World War II and the shift to a peace time economy in the US. He was also President during the creation of the United Nations, the Marshall Plan, the Berlin Airlift, the Korean War, and the start of the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union. Truman lost the 1952 Presidential bid by Democrats to Adlai Stevenson, who would lose the election by a wide margin to Dwight D. Eisenhower, who would replace Truman in the White House in 1953.
These sets are in stock ready for immediate shipping.
