The Smithsonian 150th Anniversary Confederate Coin Collection!

In 1861, the Civil War was just underway. Agents from the South approached a Philadelphia coin engraver named Robert Lovett Jr. and commissioned him to design a coin for the Confederacy. Lovett agreed, but quickly got cold feet. He hid the dies for his Confederate Cent in his cellar!

Eventually, his original dies were turned over to the Smithsonian. To mark the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War, the Smithsonian officially authorized the striking of this three-piece 1861 Confederate Cent Smithsonian Restrike Collection. All three coins feature the historic 1861 Confederate Cent design, struck in a tenth-ounce of copper and 99.9% silver, as well as a quarter-ounce of 99.9% gold. Each piece is certified Gem Proof by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) and comes sealed in a protective acrylic holder to preserve its provenance.

The entire set comes housed in an elegant wood presentation case with a clear viewing lid, along with a story card about this fascinating issue and a detailed coffee table book, Civil War Vault -- the War Between the States. Make it yours today!
