RMS Titanic - a British passenger liner and the largest ship afloat in her day - notoriously sank in the North Atlantic in 1912, killing more than 1,500 souls. It was her maiden voyage from Great Britain to the US, and since then the public has been fascinated with the ship and her tragic end. This 2-Coin Collector's Set includes genuine legal tender from the two nations most closely intertwined with the infamous voyage. From the US, a classic JFK half dollar - its head covered with a vibrantly colored image of the stately Titanic sailing away from port at full steam. The hulking vessel is flanked by "RMS Titanic" and "April 14, 1912" - the date the great ship disappeared below the cold, moonlit waters of the North Atlantic. The second coin hails from Titanic’s birthplace – the United Kingdom. It’s a shimmering 24k gold plated genuine circa-1900s Great Britain penny - the same penny carried by the ill-fated Titanic passengers in 1912. Whether you're a coin collector, Titanic enthusiast, naval history buff or just someone who appreciates fine art and craftsmanship, here’s your chance to own this extraordinary set, each coin enhanced by the experts at the Merrick Mint.
