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!
A beautiful blend of white and champagne-gold hue with peripheral bursts of turquoise. While color captures most of the strongly mirrored fields, the frosty devices are mostly white. Eye appeal is excellent. Housed in an old 'blue label' holder.
Nearly XF detail. Housed in an older PCGS holder.
Attractive warm steel-gray surfaces and solid detail. Only 36,910 pieces were minted.
Well detailed with pleasing original pewter-gray surfaces.
A rich blend of turquoise, gold, and fuchsia flows across mirrored surfaces that still allow for appearances of white. Light handling blends in quite well and is of little notice. A proof-only date that saw a production of only 350 pieces. A tough issue and very desirable example.
A rare proof-only date with a tiny mintage of just 350 pieces. This example exhibits excellent device and field contrast. Frosty mostly white design elements stand out against deeply mirrored fields of silver-white blended with crimson-gold and a touch of blue. Outstanding for the grade and sure to please!
CAC. Deep reflectivity in the fields compliments frosted design features and gives this scarce coin wonderful eye appeal. A proof-only issue with a meager 350 minted!
A stunning example of this rare date with flashy deep mirrored champagne fields that contrast beautifully against the heavily frosted design features. A beautiful Gem with a plus designation that is nearly pristine. Only 600 minted!
Beautiful vibrant surfaces with modest frost on the design and flashy mirrored fields. A delicate champagne-gold tint accents this lovely coin and enhances the wonderful eye appeal. This is a proof-only issue from the final year of the series that saw a mere 600 coins minted!
