Long a favorite of coin collectors, gold coins from the Carson City mint also enjoy a strong demand from collectors of Old West artifacts as well. A quick look at the history of this mint will show that there were numerous events that clouded the day to day operations of the mint including illegal activities by the superintendent involving “shaving” gold from the planchets prior to striking. By 1884, the mint has been reduced to producing on Morgan Silver Dollars and gold Liberty coins in $5, $10 and $20 denomination. The present coin offered has an excellent strike with smooth surfaces and plenty of mint luster.
