  • BEAUTIFUL -- COMPLETE SET -- SIX TYPES -- MORMON GOLD HISTORICAL
  • BEAUTIFUL COMPLETE SET OF THE SIX TYPES OF MORMON MONEY
  • THIS IS A WONDERFUL KEEPSAKE FEATURING THE STYLE OF PIECES MANUFACTURED FROM CALIFORNIA GOLD.
  • Set of 6 NOT REAL Mormon MONEY.
  • Members of the Mormon Battalion brought gold back from the California gold fields in 1849.
  • President and Prophet of the LDS Church Brigham Young, his counselor John Taylor, and John Kay drew up the design for several denominations of gold coins.
  • The original coins were minted in the Deseret Mint, which was located west of the old Hotel Utah on South Temple.
  • Each of the four 1849 Mormon gold coins have the same design on the back. It is "Holiness to the Lord", a 3 pointed phrygian crown, and the all seeing eye.
  • On the other side of the $2.50, $5.00, and the $20.00 is the denomination and 2 clasped hands, G.S.L.C.P.G. (Great Salt Lake City Pure Gold) and the date.
  • The $10.00 has "Pure Gold Ten Dollars" spelled out.
  • The original Mormon $20.00 gold coins were the first to be made in this country, even before the U.S. government made any $20.00 gold.
  • This set is made of pure 24 Karat gold plated. Brilliant shiny surfaces.
  • The $20.00 is 1 1/8 inches in diameter. The $10.00 is 1 inch, the $5.00 is 7/8 inch, and the $2.50 is 3/4 inch, the same size as the originals.
  • The 1850 $5.00 gold coin is basically the same, except the date, and the design of the Phrygian Crown and the all-seeing eye are different.
  • The 1860 $5.00 gold coin is the most beautiful. It has a lion on the front with the 1860 date and the lettering around the edge in the Deseret alphabet,
  • "Holiness to the Lord". On the reverse is "Deseret Assay Office 5.D." and a beautiful eagle with the beehive (Utah state symbol of industry).
  • Any of the real Mormon gold coins would cost thousands and would also be hard to acquire.
  • Total mintages of all known real Mormon gold pieces is around 300.
  • This is a wonderful way to acquire a set of these historical replica coins at a great price.
