1857 2 Coin Boxed Set | $20 Lib SSCA | $10 Horseman

Discover "The California Gold Rush - History In Your Hands 1849-1857," an extraordinary collector's piece that captures the legendary narrative of the Gold Rush era. This two-coin set, elegantly showcased in a book-like display case, transcends the realm of numismatics, offering a captivating journey through time and a unique story to be shared with friends and family.

The initial coin in this set, an 1857-S $20 Liberty Gold, stands as a marvel of its time. However, its true distinction lies in its remarkable history. Recovered from the S.S. Central America shipwreck, which sank in a hurricane in 1857 while carrying a fortune in Gold Rush gold, it now serves as a tangible link to that pivotal moment in American history.

The second coin, the 49er Horseman $10 Deep Cameo Proof, shares an equally enthralling narrative. It was recently re-made into a new coin from the large gold ingots retrieved from the S.S. Central America. This coin pays tribute to the skilled craftsmanship of 21st-century minters, featuring a "Deep Cameo Proof" quality that showcases intricate design details. It's a homage to the "49ers," the daring individuals who sought their fortunes in the heart of the Gold Rush.

These two extraordinary coins, each carrying the legacy of an iconic era, find a graceful presentation in a book-like display case. Certificates of Authenticity thoughtfully accompany each coin, enhancing the narrative of their history. As more than just a collector's acquisition, this set unfolds a compelling story that brings history vividly to life. With the holiday season approaching, it makes for a perfect gift for collectors, history enthusiasts, or anyone with a penchant for the rich heritage of the American West.

"The California Gold Rush - History In Your Hands 1849-1857" stands as an exquisite embodiment of history, artistry, and the enduring allure of gold. This limited-edition collector's set is now available at Austin Rare Coins & Bullion, providing an unmissable opportunity to own a piece of the Gold Rush era, presented in a manner that truly breathes life into history.

The pictures shown are of the exact coins and book-like box presentation that it will come in.

In August of 1857, over 400 passengers and crew set sail aboard the SS Central America from San Francisco headed for New York. The so-called "Ship of Gold" contained an enormous amount of gold nuggets and bars mined during the California Gold Rush along with freshly-minted $20 gold coins struck in 1856 and 1857 from the San Francisco mint.

In September, as the ship traveled along the coast of the Carolinas it encountered a fierce hurricane, rendering the ship helpless. Within a few hours, hundreds of passengers and the entire gold treasure sank to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean where it remained for the next 130 years.

Gold coins from the SS Central America are highly desirable by collectors and investors around the world due to their amazing history, quality, and attractive price-points. Austin Rare Coins & Bullion is proud to be one of the few dealers who are able to offer the amazing treasure recovered from the SS Central America.
