A rare chance to own the complete set of coins from one of the most notable dates in history

On the fateful day of April 10, 1912, the largest and most luxurious ocean liner ever built left Southampton for New York - no one suspected the tragedy that would come to pass.  Accompanied by beautiful sunny days and light breezes Titanic was shown off in her entire splendour during her first three days at sea. However, four days into her voyage on a calm but moonless night at 11:40 p.m. April 14, 1912, she struck a massive iceberg, ripping through her hull. Just 37 seconds was the time it took between lookout Frederick Fleet’s cry to the bridge and the mighty Titanic’s fatal collision. In less than three short hours, the Titanic, deemed unsinkable, had slipped into the cold, dark waters of the North Atlantic and disappeared beneath the silent waves forever.
