Get America's First Gold Dollar

Before 1849, the only gold dollar in the U.S. was the Spanish Half Escudo. They were legal tender all the way up to 1857, and the U.S. Gold Dollar is patterned after them. Some were lost at sea, and some were buried by pirates who never returned to claim their treasure. Many more were melted down. We snatched up this small hoard of Spanish Gold Dollars dated between 1742 and 1788. Each is over 220 years old. When you consider that U.S. gold coins from the 1700s can cost $40,000 or more, you pay a lot less than you might think at this special hoard price! Just imagine: George Washington and Ben Franklin could have carried this very same coin around as their "pocket change"! Each comes in protective capsule and presentation case - and is guaranteed to be in Very Fine condition.
