Item Description:
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.
