Centuries before diesel, gas and steam power, wind filled the sails of tall ships, and raw courage carried the men aboard them across uncharted seas. Aboard his flagship the Santa Maria, Christopher Columbus set sail in 1492 to find a shorter route to India and discovered America instead. You can recall that momentous achievement with this historic set featuring three one-year-only Columbus U.S. commemorative coins – struck 100 years apart.
