Here’s your chance to own a scarce, low-mintage Carson City $20 gold piece – handpicked from a seldom-seen large group assembled long ago. It’s very unusual to find a quantity of “CC” gold coins, and we were fortunate to handpick the nicest pieces for quality, strike and eye appeal!
Of millions of $20 Liberty Head gold pieces produced from 1850-1907, less than 1% were struck at Carson City (named for the explorer Kit Carson). This small frontier mint, established in 1870 to convert gold and silver from the legendary nearby Comstock Lode into U.S. coinage, operated only until 1893 and struck only gold and silver U.S. coins in limited quantities. Today, all Carson City coins are in great demand for their low mintage and association with the Comstock Lode and the western frontier. But “CC” $20 gold pieces are especially desirable as high-denomination legacies of the Old West!
Just 111,151 gold “twenties” were minted at Carson City in 1875, and have been lost to the smelter’s pot over the years. We usually only see a few 1875-CC’s at a time, so don’t miss this opportunity to own one of the nicest coins from a larger group. Each coin has been graded by our experts and is certified by NGC.
