Rare Historical Gold Coins
February 15, 2009 by Afshin Yaghtin
Apples of Gold has partnered with Stauer to bring you a rare collection of historical gold coins. With gold prices climbing and inflation on the rise, now is a perfect time to purchase gold coins.
These historical coins are dated 1866 – 1906 made in .900 Fine (90% pure gold). With a numismatic grade of Extremely Fine, these are limited edition collectors items. When the U.S. govt official recalled gold coins in 1934, they were melted into gold ounce ingots and nearly 95% of the San Francisco Liberty $5 dollar gold mint was lost. A limted number of the “S” Mint Half-Dollar Eagle survived both the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and subsequent fires and the Federal Government “melt down”.

The U.S. government did not begin striking its own gold coins until 1795. In 1776, the Spanish 2 Escudo became America’s first legal coin and was the gold coin of choice for Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and our Founding Fathers.
Each vintage coin is in Extremely Fine Condition and is struck in 6.7668 grams of .875 fine gold and comes in a custom display case with a hand-signed Certificate of Authenticity. Quantities are limited. (Priced at $996 and subject to change. Click Here for More Info or to Purchase).
A symbol of America’s strength and freedom is as enduring as the fine gold with which these coins were minted. Struck in 0.900 gold (90% pure gold), only 1,200 coins are graded by NGC and PF69 or higher.
