First-Ever Smithsonian Confederate Cent

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 1861 Platinum Confederate Cent based on the original dies. Each is one quarter ounce of 99.9% platinum, is certified Gem Proof by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), and comes in a protective capsule bearing the prestigious Smithsonian pedigree. Hurry, only a small number are available at this time.
