NGC AU55

1850 $20 NGC AU55 – The first year of issue for the largest denomination regularly struck in the United States until 1933. Introduced shortly after the gold rush in California started, the $20 denomination was meant to easily convert California gold into federal gold coin.

Although not very scarce in overall terms, this issue, with a mintage of 1,170,261 pieces, has always been popular as the premier coin in the double eagle series. Pieces of this issue circulated widely, with most coins surviving in VF to EF grades. AU pieces are scarce, especially when choice, and mint state coins are rare.

The present coin is a slightly circulated coin, with some small rub on the highest points. Fully struck, this coin has great detail for an AU coin, with very pleasing color. Some luster remains in the protected areas, as can be expected for the grade. No distracting hits or noticed on either side except those consistent with the grade.

Happy Collecting,
