They have a smooth and satiny appearance and sharp, square edges with well struck and high relief details. It's believed that only 20-30 sets exists.

I clicked on the link Paul and that's a misrepresenting auction title, this is not a special mint set, they're normal mint state coins. You only have the proof sets, mint sets and the rare special mint sets that almost all are accounted for and no more than 30 were minted for the then mint director.

There were were some one of a kind special strikes of common coins that turned up in the national collection and were authenticated by NGC. They were gifts to the collection by mint officials. The feature article came in Coin World. Maybe that is what he is referring to??
