The most famous maritime disaster in history took place on April 15, 1912, when the luxury liner Titanic struck an iceberg and sank. The tragedy was compounded because the supposedly “unsinkable” ship was not carrying enough lifeboats, and more than half of those aboard died. Yet, this catastrophe resulted in new safety rules… like lifeboats for all passengers, and drills to prevent future disasters of this scope.
The Titanic has been the subject of many books and movies, including a 1997 blockbuster film. Collectors eagerly seek Titanic memorabilia, and you’ll enjoy this complete set of 1912 coins from the year of the ship’s tragic maiden voyage. While collectors have paid $55,000 for a Titanic life jacket, and $44,650 for a third-class menu postcard, you can own our Titanic Year Set for much less! Your five-piece set contains each circulating 1912 coin (no dollars were issued). You’ll get a Lincoln cent and Liberty Head nickel – plus a Barber dime, quarter and half dollar all struck in 90% silver! Your set will come with a clear plastic holder and includes a brief history of the RMS Titanic and a certificate of authenticity.
