Struck During the First Year of the Civil War!

April 14, 1861 -- after two days of shelling, the Union formally surrenders Ft. Sumter to the Confederacy. A day later, President Abraham Lincoln, inaugurated barely a month before, mobilizes 75,000 volunteers into a Federal army. The bloodiest conflict in American history had begun, and would not end until more than 620,000 soldiers lost their lives.

Struck during the first year of the Civil War, these $20 Liberty gold coins were highly treasured -- in today's money, they'd be worth more than $500! Imagine what a Civil War soldier would be able to buy for just one of these incredible pieces.

Each highly sought-after coin comes straight from the Rive d'Or Hoard graded by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) in About Uncirculated-58 (AU58) condition. To put that in perspective -- the Smithsonian Institute's numismatic collection only has an AU50! We've already sold approximately 40,000 coins from this hoard, so don't wait -- coins graded this high definitely won't last long!
