Superb California Fractional Gold Coins from SS Central America

An amazing group of high quality California fractional gold coins were recovered from the fabled “Ship of Gold”, the SS Central America, that sank in 1857.

A total of 112 privately-minted, California Gold Rush fractional coins in denominations of 25 cents, 50 cents and $1 were retrieved from the Atlantic Ocean. 54 of them have been designated prooflike by PCGS.
