America’s First Official Gold Coin
Long before the U.S. began minting its own currency, the Spanish 2-escudos coin was one of a handful officially authorised as legal tender in the newly-formed United States of America. It contained about a fifth of an ounce of gold and was beautifully struck on some of the earliest coin presses.This historic gold coin:
- Will be dated 1833 or earlier.
- Features a portrait of the reigning Spanish monarch on the front, and the crowned shield of the Spanish royal family on the back.
- Is presented in gently circulated condition, protectively encapsulated and housed in a custom-crafted display chest.
