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!
Well detailed with pleasing battleship-gray surfaces. Just 36,910 minted.
A nice example of this better date.
A well detailed example with steel gray surfaces.
Attractive steel-gray surfaces with noticeable underlying luster. A mintage of 133,290.
Deeply mirrored mostly white surfaces exhibit excellent contrast with very frosty devices. A mintage of just 1,1260 and very scarce and desirable as a 'deep cameo'. Only 2 of such for this date have graded numerically finer at PCGS.
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!
