Rare Colonial America Issue

1776 Continental Dollar $1 PCGS/CAC MS63 (CURENCY, Pewter)

Coins We Love
$157,500.00
 

A fascinating issue as the origin of these issues is not clear, except that it was likely rooted in the desire of the Continental Congress to issue a monetary medium of exchange. Issued in 1776, most of these examples were made of pewter as silver was not affordable to the fledgling government. Likely struck in three different cities, New York City, Philadelphia, and/or Lancaster, PA these are very popular issues due to their association with the Revolutionary War. This particular piece possesses a lovely gray tint with beautiful, frosty surfaces and fantastic luster. It is truly a numismatic rarity that is very rare in such nice condition. CAC approved for quality.

Commemorative Shipwreck Restrike

SS Central America Shipwreck: 1855 Kellogg Restrike PCGS Gem Uncirculated (Box and COA)

Coins We Love
$4,750.00
 

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