Complete US Mint Year Set (Foreign and Domestic) – 1924

The average price of gold dropped from $21.52 to $20.69 per ounce in 1924, but silver rose 5% to $.692 per ounce, while the DJIA dropped about 3%. No, this doesn’t sound like the “Roaring 20’s” but they were in full swing. St Petersburg’s name was changed to Leningrad as Lenin was placed in a mausoleum in Red Square, King Tut’s tomb was opened, and IBM was founded. No, not a very exciting year in terms of world history, and not much was happening in the world of numismatics. There were no key dates for the year, and no pattern coins, but the following were minted for collectors of this year:

  • Lincoln Cent – P, D, & S
  • Buffalo Nickel – P, D, & S
  • Mercury Dime – P, D, & S
  • Standing Liberty Quarter – P, D, & S
  • Peace Dollar – P & S
