Product description
The quarter eagle, or 2 1/2 dollar gold coin, had been minted for more than 50 years when gold was discovered in California in 1848. The sudden influx of this precious metal prompted the U.S. Mint to increase production of its most affordable gold coin. They used the existing “Coronet” design, created by Christian Gobrecht, but added one distinct feature. To indicate that these quarter eagles were minted from California gold, the initials “CAL” were punched
into the reverse above the eagle head. Only 1,389 quarter eagles were ever made with this indicia, and fewer than 200 are known to still exist today, making this one of the rarest gold coins in American history.

To honor this extremely rare and valuable treasure, American Mint has created a highly detailed replica, minted to the highest quality “Proof ” standard and richly layered in 24k gold. Your 1848 Gold Quarter Eagle Replica is exquisitely presented with the rich history and specifications of the original gold coin in a clear acrylic capsule to preserve it for generations to come – a true collector’s item.
