1861 Dan Carr Confederate $20 Gold ANACS MS69 SOLD
1861 Dan Carr Confederate $20 Gold ANACS MS69
This 1861 Confederate $20 Gold Double Eagle is a fantasy piece issued in 2011 by Daniel Carr in celebration of the 150th anniversary of Confederate coinage. No gold Double Eagles were originally struck by the Confederate government, but if they had been this coin is a well-made representation of what those coins may have looked like. The coin features the obverse design of the U.S. Liberty Head Double Eagles of the time period and the reverse design of the Confederate States Half Dollar which has been modified to show the Twenty Dollar denomination. A total of 37 pieces were produced in gold. 23 of those pieces were overstruck on genuine U.S. Double Eagles of the time period. The remaining 14 coins, including the coin offered here, were struck on 999+ fine gold 1 troy ounce planchets. Although hidden by the holder, the coin is marked on the edge as being “ONE TROY OZ. 999+ GOLD.” This example of the 1861 Confederate States Double Eagle has been graded MS69 by ANACS and the reverse of the certification label has been autographed by Daniel Carr. As the grade suggests, the coin is virtually flawless with only a couple of tiny imperfections on the reverse that are only noticed under very close inspection. A wonderful conversation piece and an opportunity to own a beautiful example of a coin with a mintage of only 14 pieces.
