Be the first to review this product

This is an attractive, orange-gold example $20 Double Eagle from the SS Central America Shipwreck. Known as the Ship of Gold, this 280-foot side wheel steamer operated between Central America and the eastern coast of the United States during the 1850’s. The ship sank in a hurricane in September 1857 along with 30,000 pounds of gold, contributing to the Panic of 1857. 

The shipwreck was located in September 1988, with significant amount of gold and artifacts being brought to the surface. 

This coin will come with the original box and certification, coins recovered and struck in 1856 are far more scarce than those dated 1857. This is the actual coin you will receive and it comes with all original packaging and certification from the recovery group.
