SS Central America $10 Justh & Hunter Pioneer Gold
PCGS DCAM PROOF
Inquire SOLD

In 1850 Baldwin & Co. designed an 1850 $10 private gold coin that is known as “The Horseman.” The obverse displayed the image of a cowboy riding horseback, and the reverse was similar to the design of Federal Issue $10 Eagles of the era.

A genuine Horseman coin is a major numismatic achievement, and can fetch tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars at auction depending on its condition.

These 49er Horseman coins are special commemoratives designed to look like the original Horseman coin from Baldwin & Co. They have a special link to California Gold Rush history and to the S.S. Central America shipwreck. Each one contains .54 ounces of gold that was recovered from ingots assayed in 1857 by Justh & Hunter and recovered from the S.S. Central America shipwreck.

Only 4,006 of these coins were issued and all were struck in 2002. They were made with painstaking detail using original methods that would have been used with the original Horseman coins of 1850.

Each coin is struck with a beautiful mirrored finish and is designated by PCGS as Deep Cameo Proof. They are remarkable pieces to own and are a very important part of California Gold Rush history.
