4 Coin Set: THE SMITHSONIAN 1861 Confederate 1 Cent NGC Gem Proof; Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Copper with Case. Private Issue Struck in 2011! 150th Anniversary of the Civil War, Confederate "Restrikes"! The Smithsonian 150th Anniversary Confederate Coin Collection!
In 1861, the Civil War was just underway. Agents from the South approached a Philadelphia coin engraver named Robert Lovett Jr. And commissioned him to design a coin for the Confederacy.
Lovett agreed, but quickly got cold feet. He hid the dies for his Confederate Cent in his cellar! Eventually his original dies were turned over to the Smithsonian.
To mark the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War, the Smithsonian officially authorized the striking of this four-piece 1861 Confederate Cent Smithsonian Restrike Collection. All four coins feature the historic 1861 Confederate Cent design, struck in a tenth-ounce of copper, 99.9% silver, 99.9% Platinum and 99.9% gold. Each piece is certified Gem Proof by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) and comes sealed in a protective acrylic holder to preserve its provenance.
The entire set comes housed in an elegant wood presentation case with a clear viewing lid, along with a story card about this fascinating issue, Civil War Vault, the War Between the States.
