Manchester United’s Treble during the 1998-99 season was perhaps the unlikeliest of feats in the football world save only for Leicester’s Premiership title of 2016 and the yet to be achieved first match victory in a major international tournament for the English national team. Under the leadership of Sir Alex Ferguson, the Red Devils managed to win the English Premiership, the European Cup and the FA Cup all in the same season.
Of interest to both football fans and coin collectors around the world is this unique set of four silver coins minted to commemorate Manchester United’s “Impossible Dream” season. Each of the medallions, one for each of the championship and one additional commemorating the entire season featuring Sir Alex Ferguson on the reverse side, are encapsulated in a plastic coin holder and presented in high grade silver ( .999 – may show some tarnish). The entire set is boxed in a red case with the Manchester United logo adorning the inside cover.
