Official Smithsonian 1/10 oz. Gold Union Commemorative

Honoring a design that was almost lost in time!

George T. Morgan is well-known for designing the highly popular Morgan Silver Dollar, as well as serving as the 7th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint from 1879 to 1917. He is considered by some to be one of the greatest coin designers in American history. In the summer of 2006, some of his original coin sketches were unearthed by researchers in the Smithsonian archives. Among these sketches was something never before seen — the design for a $100 5 oz. gold coin — the legendary Union!
