Peace, love and rock music came together in perfect symmetry during the summer of 1969. Of all places, it happened on a 600-acre dairy farm in the Catskill Mountains. Known today simply as “Woodstock,” the massive music festival attracted more than 400,000 people from August 15-18 and become a cultural touchstone that defined a generation.
As the young people flooded into farmland near White Lake, New York to hear their favorite artists, these were the freshly struck coins rattling in their pockets! This Woodstock 50th Anniversary Tribute Set contains all five 1969 U.S. circulating coins: the Lincoln Cent, Jefferson Nickel, Roosevelt Dime, Washington Quarter and Kennedy Half Dollar. Each comes in Choice Uncirculated condition, housed together in a clear holder with a custom-designed insert card. Order this groovy set today!
Single events seldom define generations, and in the rare cases that they have, they’ve typically been World Wars. In one case, though, a four-day concert did just that. Named for Woodstock, a town located 43 miles from where the event took place, the festival was advertised as “3 Days of Peace & Music.” Fifty years later, it remains so much more than that to those who attended.
