Putting together the 1 of 190 WTC set

So as always I look around Ebay to see what is available of the WTC coins and today, I can see something that might interest lots of people. The 1 of 190 set, the first set of 2001 coins put together by PCGS can be pieced together from different auction this week.
1 of 190 wtc

I have put below all the different auctions that you need to visit to put this set together but that is what us collectors do we collect and enjoy it.

So lets start with the big dog, the WTC $100 platinum coin.

After that there are a few ways to go to get the rest of the coins that are missing in the set. You can buy the rest of the coins from one seller, see it here.

Mistake Made On WTC911coins 1 0f 531

I got a letter from a collector from NC, that points out an interesting mistake it looks like I have made on this site. I did do some quick research on it and it looks like my friend are right, so it has to do with the sets of coins 1 of 190 , 1 of 269 and 1 of 531. I had before on this site said the 1 of 531 was a 5 coin set, well his theory and one I will go with as it sounds very correct is the following.

Looks like they started making sets with 2001 GU coins.  They started with 190 6-coin sets and ran out of $100 platinum  eagles.  Then came the 269 5-coin sets.  When they ran out of $50 gold pieces, they came up with 531 4-coin sets with out the $50 gold eagle. Doesn't that seem logical? It sounds right to me and I yes it does make sense. As I hope everybody understand I am going by the information I have and can find, so if anybody want to make other corrections to this site with research please do so and seen me an email so I can correct it. questions@wtc911coins.com

I have corrected the 1 of 531 here on these pages and I apologies to anybody that has been looking for the $50 piece for their series. Again Big thanks from Willi, NC for his email today, I love to learn something new everyday if possible.

WTC E-Book Section Review

Here is a basic timeline of the discovery and retrieval of the WTC Coins

Oct. 30, 2001: News reports confirm that “a small army of federal agents” stood guard as two Brinks armored trucks worth of gold from underneath Tower #5 of the World Trade Center. In order to reach the cache, workers had to get around a 10 wheeled truck and crushed cars.

Oct 31, 2001: Mayor Rudy Giuliani confirms that much of the lost treasure under 4 World Trade Center has been recovered.

Nov 1, 2001: Iron Mountain Vault that is directly under Tower 4 of the WTC is finally reached, with the coins therein transferred via Brinks armored trucks to storage facilities.

November-December, 2001: The coins are slowly recovered, and eventually sent to Collectors Universe, which is not a grading company itself. CU lists the coins as “Gem Uncirculated”.

Dec. 1, 2001 – June 2002: PCGS starts grading and cataloguing the recovered coins.

While the history of the recovered World Trade Center coins has been surrounded by debate and controversy, it is notable that Collector’s Universe raised some $42,000 for members of the NYFD and their families via the Uniformed Fire Fighters Association Widows and Children's Fund through the sale of some of the coins.

No reserve $50 Gold WTC 1998 MS 69

I really like when the market gets to decide the prices on a coin and a person puts up a WTC 1 oz gold coin in a No Reserve auction.

Great looking photo of the coin, the WTC 1998 $50 gold coin, graded MS 69 by PCGS. I am really excited to see what a coin like this would go for with the gold prices going up like they are. I will project a price above $1,500 for this coin. I will follow it and maybe even bid on it. Did I mention its even free shipping on this coin, can't beat that.

The same guy has also a WTC 1997 1 oz gold coin up for sale with No Reserve on it, this will be two very interesting auctions to watch as they go on.
