1912-P 2.50 Dollar Gold Indian Titanic XF
"Why Mr. Astor, This Ship is Unsinkable!"
You can almost imagine the purser assuring the world's richest man, John Jacob Astor IV, as he climbed the ramp of the ill-fated Titanic in April, 1912. But, contrary to popular belief, the White Star Line never claimed the ship was unsinkable. The myth arose due to an article published in The Shipbuilder Magazine when the ship was being fitted out. The magazine claimed the Titanic was "practically unsinkable," due to her double bottom and watertight compartments. So, Mr. Astor and the other folks on the ship rich enough to own them, may have carried their newly minted 1912 $2.50 Indian Gold coins with them on their voyage. To honor the 100th anniversary of the Titanic, we've assembled these 1912 Titanic anniversary Indian Gold Quarter Eagles so you can add them to your collection of Titanic-era artifacts. Each 90% Gold Indian comes with a certificate of authenticity, and it includes a story card detailing the life and fateful ending of John Jacob Astor aboard the Titanic. Each is in Extremely Fine (XF) condition.
