Complete US Mint Year Set (Foreign and Domestic) – 1925

Both silver and gold remained steady (silver unchanged at $.692 and gold down a nickel to $20.64), but the DJIA kicked into high gear as it advanced almost 29% for the year.

As for other news, Babe Ruth was hospitalized much of the season after surgery, Lou Gehrig began his 2,130 game streak, the John Scopes Monkey Trial began, and Mount Rushmore was proposed.
