Description

The 1998 Pinnacle Mint set was issued in one series of 30 die-cut cards and 30 paralleling coins. Pinnacle Brands designed the product (unsuccessfully) to appeal to both card collectors and numismatists. The coins were designed to fit inside the die-cut cards, and came packaged in a 2.5" X 3.5" plastic holder.

Distribution

Hobby: Two die-cut base cards, one Bronze parallel, and two coins per pack (MSRP $3.99)

Retail: One die-cut base card, one Bronze parallel, and one coin per pack (MSRP $2.99)

Each of the 30 base cards are available as coins. Each coin is the same diameter as the hole punched in each die-cut base card, and are available in the following metals.

  • Brass
  • Nickel
  • Gold Plated
  • Brass Artist's Proof (limited to 500 coins)
  • Nickel Artist's Proof (limited to 250 coins)
  • Gold Plated Artist's Proof (limited to 100 coins)
  • Solid Silver
  • Solid Gold (One-of-one, EXCH)

NOTES:

  • Each Artist's Proof Coin is stamped with the "ARTIST'S PROOF" phrase, to differentiate them from the standard coins. The production figures listed were released by Pinnacle Brands at the time of release; however, the coins themselves are NOT serial-numbered.
  • The Solid Silver and Solid Gold coins are made of one solid troy ounce of real silver or 24 carat gold.
  • The production figures on the Solid Silver Coins was not revealed, but it is estimated at around 20-25 coins.
  • In lieu of inserting the Solid Gold Coins into packs, exchange cards were issued. Due to Pinnacle Brands' 1998 bankruptcy, very few of the Solid Gold Coin exchange cards were redeemed.
