The coins that never were – Carson City Gold Proofs at a price you won’t believe!

1885-CC Gold Half Eagle

Lost in time – the 1885-CC Gold Half Eagle

Struck by the Carson City Mint, this is the “CC” coin that never was!

Legislation for these coins never passed, so the coins were never put into circulation. These “lost designs” have since been re-discovered and painstakingly recreated in the form of gold commemoratives so that collectors like you can add them to their collection and appreciate their historical significance.

1885-CC Gold $5 Commemorative Proof

Struck from 8.35 grams of .900 fine gold, this commemorative honors the lost 1885-CC $5 Coronet Half Eagle. No gold Half Eagles were struck from the Carson City Mint during 1885 and the series ended in 1890, making it difficult for collectors around the world to obtain these coins.

In an agreement with the Carson City Mint, ModernCoinMart (MCM) is proud to offer the lost Carson City Mint 1885 Half Eagle certified by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as GEM Deep Prooflike condition.
