Why add the (2017) Smithsonian 1877 Half Union Sunshine Minting Copper 50mm Proof With Capsules GEM Proof to your collection?

This (2017) Smithsonian 1877 Half Union issue was struck to brilliant proof quality by Sunshine Minting. The piece is struck on .999 pure copper 1 oz. AVDP planchets and comes in a protective capsule. The mintage is a low 2,500 units and fits nicely with our "Coins that Never Were" series of patterns and restrikes that are otherwise unavailable to most collectors.

Excellent William Barber Design

The Half Union coin was designed as a $50 face value gold issue. There are two pattern coins in existence in the Smithsonian Numismatic Collection. The coin was never approved for release, much to the disappointment of today's collectors. The obverse of the issue features a profile of Liberty wearing a small, inscribed crown. The portrait bears a resemblance to both the Longacre $20 Double Eagle portrait and the Morgan Silver dollar portrait of Liberty. The reverse Heraldic Eagle bears a strong resemblance to the Longacre $20 gold piece "with motto" reverse.

Beautiful Gem Proof

Gem Proof coins and medals are created using highly polished dies and planchets. The finish this process creates is among the finest in the Numismatic world. Gem Proofs are coveted and widely collected.

This unique issue is sure to fire the imagination of collectors at every level of the hobby! Order your 2017 Smithsonian 1877 Half Union Copper 50mm Gem Proof in the plastic protective capsule from ModernCoinMart today.
