First-Year-of-Issue Double Eagle Tribute Proof Set
Very few U.S. coins can lay claim to being issued at five different mints. The $20 Gold Double Eagle gold coin is one of them. In 1849, the Philadelphia Mint struck one specimen of the coin which is now housed at the Smithsonian Institution. In 1850, the New Orleans Mint issued this coin for the very first time. In 1854, the San Francisco Mint began minting the $20 Gold Double Eagle, utilizing much of the gold that had been mined by the ’49ers. In 1870, the Carson City Mint began issuing this gold coin with the coveted “CC” mint mark. Finally, the Denver Mint began striking this coin in 1906, one of only two years that it was minted there. Now you can obtain a complete first-year-of-issue set of five privately minted, non-monetary Tribute Proofs honoring these historic firsts. Each proof in the set is clad in a full 14 mg of Pure 24KT Gold. Comes complete with plush collectors case and Certificate of Authenticity.
