  • The $20 Liberty Gold coin has been previously called the child of the California Gold Rush. In 1848 California became flooded with gold as a result of the California Gold Rush – more gold than they had use for. James Iver McKay, a North Carolina congressman, came up with the idea of a $20 gold coin made with almost an ounce of pure California gold - this made it twice the size of any U.S gold made before this time. This idea by McKay blossomed into one of the most significant coins of its era, however it came to an end in 1933 where vast quantities were sent to be melted. Only a few were spared which makes this a highly remarkable and important piece.
