Product Description

S.S. Central America, 20B Bold "S." The 20B, Bold "S" is described by S.S.C.A. researcher Robert Evans as scarcer than the Variety 20A Spiked Shield. This coin was minted from gold found during the California Gold Rush known today as “America’s Lost Treasure”. It is part of the coins minted in San Francisco then put on the ill-fated S.S. Central America which set sail for New York City. The ship encountered a fierce hurricane off the East coast, sunk, and remained beneath the Atlantic Ocean off the Carolinas for the next 130 years.
