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!
Precise detail and nice brilliant proof surfaces.
Sharp detail and problem-free with nice gunmetal gray surfaces with a trace of luster and a touch of gold at the rim. Just about perfect for the grade! Only 36,910 minted.

The last date for the series and a proof-only issue with just 600 minted. This is a very desirable example with highly reflective brilliant proof fields and a nice amount of frost on the devices.
