MECHANICSBURG, Pa., Sept. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- American Mint, LLC President Kevin Sacher is excited to announce the release of a new coin set to commemorate the three days of intense fighting at the Battle of Gettysburg during the Civil War. Available exclusively from American Mint, these high quality silver-plated "Proof" coins are limited to just 150 4-piece sets.
On July 1, 1863, Union and Confederate forces collided, beginning day one of the Battle of Gettysburg. The fighting began at McPherson Ridge and stretched north in an arc as the day wore on. Finally, Union forces retreated south of the town to Cemetery Hill. The coin set depicts these events and even includes a free custom folder for storage and display.
