YBCO appears to be the best available HTS material for the needed very high field solenoids for a muon collider’s final ionization cooling. Two nested YBCO coils will be built, that should generate 10 and 12 T respectively, at 4 degrees Kelvin, and over 20 Tesla together. It is planned to test them later in a 19 Tesla resistive coil at the NHMFL. The current status of construction and a measurement of the coil’s stainless steel ‘insulation’ is described. Quench protection is discussed.
