    S.S. Central America: 1855 Kellogg Restrike $50 PCGS Gem Proof

    $6,150.00
     

    These 2.5 ounce gold coins were produced in commemoration of the S.S. Central America's voyage and unfortunate end in 1857. The California Historical Society went through great lengths to closely replicate the original Kellogg $50 proofs by creating dies transferred from the originals, using gold from Kellogg and Co. ingots found in the shipwreck, and striking them with a press from the San Francisco mint. An original Kellogg $50 in gem condition is incredible rare. However, the uncirculated examples of the restrike are extremely scarce as a number disappeared with the original founder of the ship when he allegedly ran away from legal debts.

An original Kellogg $50 proof would cost you the better part of $1 million. These replicas present a reasonable alternative.
