This (2017) Smithsonian 1877 Half Union issue was struck to brilliant proof quality by Sunshine Minting. The piece is struck on .9999 pure Gold 1/2 oz. actual gold weight planchets. The mintage is a low 200 sets and fits nicely with our "Coins that Never Were" series of patterns and restrikes that are otherwise unavailable to most collectors.

Rare William Barber Design

The Half Union coin was designed as a $50 face value gold issue. There are two never-released pattern coins in existence at the Smithsonian Numismatic Collection. The obverse of the issue features a profile of Liberty wearing a small, inscribed crown. The portrait is similar to both the James Longacre $20 Double Eagle portrait and the George Morgan Silver dollar effigy of Liberty. The Heraldic Eagle reverse image is similar to the Liberty $20 gold piece "with motto" design.

Beautiful Proof 70 Ultra Cameo Examples

Proof 70 coins and medals are flawless examples created using highly polished dies and planchets. The finish this process creates is among the finest in the Numismatic world. Ultra Cameo refers specifically to the highly desirable contrast between the frosty design details and the mirror-like fields.
