Selected NGC-Certified Coins and Banknotes Honor Women of Change
For its 97th annual National Coin Week, April 19–25, 2020, the American Numismatic Association (ANA) is honoring women of change. In allegiance with the ANA’s theme, MA-Shops is pleased to showcase a special collection of rare US coins and banknotes certified by NGC and PMG.
The coins being showcased celebrate the rich culture and history of American currency and reflect the evolution of numismatic design over a period of more than 200 years.
One impressive example is an 1824/1 Capped Bust Quarter Eagle graded NGC MS 61 that is offered at $39,600 USD. This gold version of the Capped Bust design features Liberty wearing a soft cap and is the third variation of Liberty in the Capped Bust series. Demonstrating that Liberty is indeed a woman of change who has worn many hats over the years, it is a special coin that is not easy to locate.
Other significant NGC-certified coins being offered include:
• An 1829 Capped Bust Dime graded NGC PF 65 offered at $37,500 USD — a coin with great eye appeal and beautiful gold, brown, blue and peach toning
• An 1873 Arrows Half Dollar graded NGC PF 65 offered at $8,000 USD — a very rare coin with a mintage of only 550, making it scarcer than the 1874 Proof
• An 1874 Arrows Quarter graded NGC PF 66 offered at $7,750 USD — a gold-, blue- and violet-toned example of a coin that was only minted for two years
• An 1862 Gold Dollar graded NGC MS 67 offered at $7,500 USD — an amazingly well-preserved coin from the Civil War era with a sharp strike and superb eye appeal
• An 1878 Gold $3 graded NGC MS 63 offered at $3,412.50 — a coin by well-known designer James B. Longacre that is one of only 82,304 struck
• An 1889 Gold Dollar graded NGC MS 66 offered at $1,265.25 — a low-mintage coin with attractive toning.
A desirable PMG-certified note is a 1928 $50 Gold Certificate graded PMG 63 Choice Uncirculated EPQ offered at $3,100. It is signed by Walter Orr Woods, Treasurer of the United States, and Andrew William Mellon, Secretary of the Treasury. After the gold recall in 1933, gold certificates were withdrawn from circulation, and it was illegal to own them. Thus, the notes are scarce and valuable, especially examples in uncirculated condition like this one.
