These shining replicas of two rare 1870-CC U.S. coins are perfect tributes to the 150th anniversary of the Carson City Mint! Following the discovery of the great Comstock Lode, a mint facility opened for business in Carson City, Nevada. The “CC” mint struck only silver and gold U.S. coins from 1870 until 1893, when it ceased production. Though it was a short-lived facility, this frontier mint produced many sought-after coins. Now, own detailed tributes to two rare, low-mintage coins struck at the “CC” mint during its inaugural year! You’ll enjoy:

  • Liberty Seated Silver Dollar replica – struck in 1 oz. of 99.9% pure silver. The original coin had a low mintage of just 11,758, and an example sold for a record price of $126,500 in 2012.
  • Gold $20 Liberty Head replica – this 1 oz. copper piece is plated in precious 22k gold. A mere 3,789 original pieces were minted. In 2009, an About Uncirculated example sold at auction for a record $414,000!

Each Brilliant Uncirculated replica features the word copy as required by the Hobby Protection Act. While an original coin is out of reach for most collectors, these replicas offer an affordable way to own an exciting first-year “CC” design. Buy both and get a FREE display box!
