his very short-lived series followed the Seated Liberty design of the era. Twenty Cent Pieces were struck from 1875 to 1878 with 1877 and 1878 being rare proof-only Twenty Cent Pieces. Philadelphia, Carson City and the San Francisco Mint all struck Twenty Cent Pieces.
The 1876-CC is the ‘key’ to a complete Twenty Cent Piece collection. 10,000 coins were struck but almost all were melted at the Carson City Mint. Today, a decent example of this rare Twenty Cent Piece easily fetches $100,000!
Brilliant white luster with reflective fields and sharp detail. A popular first year of the denomination proof with a mintage of just 2,790 coins.
Precise detail and nice brilliant proof surfaces.
A well-worn but attractive example of this scarce date.
The only collectible Carson City Mint Twenty Cent Piece and an issue that is plagued with very poor strikes. This example is exceptionally well struck with crisp mint luster and attractive light champagne-gold toning.
CAC. Well struck with lustrous surfaces and a light golden-tan hue. Right on the edge of being mint state and with better eye appeal than most example that grade a few points higher!
A very pleasing, well detailed coin with remnants of mint luster and nice light steel-gray surfaces.
Well struck with crisp luster and just a touch of toning.
A nice Gem example of this short-lived denomination. The strike is very sharp and the luster is a vibrant and cream-white.
