The Rarest Gold Coins of the Carson City Mint recreated as a 24KT Gold Clad 3-piece Tribute Proof Set!
In 1870, after much controversy, the Carson City Mint opened its doors and struck its very first gold coins: the 1870 $20 Double Eagle, $10 Eagle and $5 Half Eagle, the first gold coins to ever bear the coveted “CC” mint mark. Today these three coins are so sought after by collectors that rare examples recently sold at auction for more than half a million dollars! Now, this special release of a 3-piece privately minted, non-monetary tribute proof set by the National Collector’s Mint brings these 1870 Carson City designs within your reach. Each proof is crafted to the highest quality standards and is in Gem Proof condition. They are clad in a total of 27 mg. of 24KT gold. And each piece has been expertly struck to produce the exacting detail and mirrored surfaces discriminating collectors demand. Set comes complete with Certificate of Authenticity and deluxe blue collector’s case.
