Specifications

The design features a seated Lady Liberty, facing right, onlooking a harbour which was representative of the burgeoning trade of the time. George T. Morgan is a name that carries significant weight in both American and Bullion history. As the designer of one of the most iconic bullion coins ever minted- the Morgan Silver Dollar, Morgan is also credited with the conceptual design or pattern of a set of coins to have the highest denominational value time. George T. Morgan proposed two designs for what would be known as the Half Union and Union gold coins with a denominational value of $50 and $100, respectively. Only two copies of the half Union were ever produced, both contained at the Smithsonian Museum, while the sketch for the Union gold coin was discovered. This design has become an instant icon, re-imagined by a private American mint and available to you today, in the form of this stunning, ultra-cameo, gem proof coin.

The reverse design features a seated Lady Liberty, facing right, onlooking a harbour which was representative of the burgeoning trade of the time. The historic design has been modernized with contemporary minting techniques, allowing for a more vivid and aesthetically pleasing coin.

Contained on the obverse is a United States bald eagle, with its wings splayed, as it carries a shield adorned with the stars and stripes and a bundle of arrows, and an olive branch, with the nation of the issue above.

The coin is steeped in history, and begs the question of what could have been, had this stunning coin been minted. As a true collector’s item, with a minimal mintage of a mere 5000, slabbed, graded and certified by NGC, one of the world’s leading coin authorities, you will not have to wonder and can hold a 999 pure piece of history.
