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. Each Hobby pack contained two die-cut base cards , one Bronze parallel card, and two coins. The coins were designed to fit inside the die-cut cards.

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)
