We have managed to source just 20 sought-after Liberty Head Gold Dollar Coins from the American Civil War. Civil War gold coins are incredibly collectible since it is such an important part of America's history and they have some of the lowest mintages ever produced, some as low as 1,000. This particular coin is desirable for three reasons:
1. The mintage dropped because of the War.
2. Large numbers were melted down by the South to pay for munitions.
3. An Executive Order issued by Roosevelt in 1933 banned the ownership of gold by US citizens. So huge amounts of gold were taken out of private ownership by the US Government, further reducing the numbers of this particular coin.
Struck in 900/1000 gold, the obverse features a Liberty Head which unusually features something akin to an Indian head-dress. The reverse features a wreath with denomination and date.
Only 20 pieces available
Importantly, this coin is a must-have for every American collector which makes the especially hard to get hold of outside the USA and we have just 20 available on a strict first come first served basis.
Given that almost 10% of the US population fought in the Civil War there is every chance this coin once rested in the purse of someone who took part. Maybe they even fought one of the big battles with it right there in their pocket.
