Greetings

I'm interested in the history of the Daisy Dollars, such as this one:  http://coins.calkinsc.com/images/daisydollar_winchester1894.jpg" rel="nofollow - http://coins.calkinsc.com/images/daisydollar_winchester1894.jpg

Can anyone tell me what types were produced, how many were made, and when they were issued?   I've heard that there were 12, but so far I've only been able to track down 9 different ones (1848 percussion pistol, 1886 Paterson pistol, Colt Frontier pistol, Colt Walker pistol, 1880 Derringer, Sharps rifle, Springfield rifle, 1894 Winchester rifle, Henry rifle) including the one above.  I take it that these were distributed with the Daisy strong box?

Information on these seems difficult to find - general web searches don't lead me anywhere, I didn't see any info on the main Daisy museum site, and a search of the forums didn't return any results.  If I've missed something, though, feel free to point me in the right direction.  Thanks!

To follow-up on my own post, I see that the museum store surprisingly still sells them, and lists all 12 types.  Are these new strikes, or the originals from the 70s and 80s?   Still curious as to their history and how many were made.  Thanks!

Just a thought.......you may want to call the Daisy Museum and they may be able to answer your question.

I see the individual coins do not show the Walker pistol or the Sharps rifle (although they're in a list below the ordering options selection field). They seem to still all be available if you buy the 12 coin set, though.
