Portuguese Prestige Proof Sets

Starting in 1987, Portugal released a number of prestige proof coin sets. Each set contained four different coins, one each in gold, silver, platinum and palladium. The issue price of these sets was in excess of $2,000 US per set, and the issue quantity was surprisingly high, in our opinion, considering the high issue price. It appears to have been a very successful series, as all of the sets catalogue in excess of issue price, up to $2,700 per set, according to Krause.
