NGC Featured Registry Set: US Commemorative Set

Posted on 5/10/2022

This month’s featured set belongs to Bruce Laquster.

As the month of May rolls in, we think of the US veterans who have served our country for generations. In honor of Memorial Day, we feature an extensive modern commemorative NGC Registry Set, The Renard Collection of Commemorative Silver Dollars, by Bruce Laquster.

The US Commemorative sets are some of the most popular in the NGC Registry, boasting over 9,000 participating sets. This modern commemorative silver dollar set has over 1,100 active sets alone! The numbers are high across all fronts with this collector’s #1 ranked set; Bruce has over 141,000 registry points, sits at 100% completion and displays all Top Pop/perfect 70 coins! There are so many sharp, lovely images, but we can only choose a few for this article. Be sure to check out his comprehensive gallery including his 2005 P Marines S$1, NGC PF 70 UC; 1994 P Women Veterans S$1, NGC PF 70 UC; 1995 S Civil War S$1, NGC PF 70 UC and 1998 S Black Patriots S$1, NGC PF 70 UC.

Whether one is a modern commemorative fan or not, one must appreciate the pure perseverance Bruce has shown with this set. He started back in 2010, twelve years ago, and has a most recent addition just a few weeks ago! We commend you, Bruce, for your obvious dedication to compiling the best collection possible with this series. Thank you for sharing your collection for the enjoyment of the entire NGC collecting community. With over 6,000 views, this set is definitely the model for other competitors seeking higher rank. There are a few others starting to creep up the ladder on this first place collection. We are excited to see what happens with this set category as 2022 moves forward!

Would you like your set to be featured in a future article? 100% completion in a set is not always feasible. Perhaps, we will choose someone whose set has a personal story behind it or some interesting historical facts. We are looking for those sets where someone has taken the time to make the set unique and a reflection of his/her personal collecting style. It may be your set! Stay tuned.
