Some popular examples of US gold commemorative issues are the 1905 Lewis & Clark, 1915 Panama Pacific Exposition, 1916 & 1917 McKinley Gold $1, 1922 Grant Gold $1 and 1926 Sesquicentennial of American Independence coins. The Forty-Niner Horseman “Ship of Gold” Commemoratives, based on the finest-known, mint-state 1850 Baldwin ”Vacquero” $10 Horseman in existence, were struck by the Royal Canadian Mint using original unparted California Gold Rush gold recovered from the 1857 shipwreck of the SS Central America. The striking dies for these commemoratives were hand-carved using 1850s-era tools and methods. With minting strictly limited to just 4,000 coins, and certified by PCGS as Gem-Proof condition, the Forty-Niner Horseman Commemoratives are tremendous tributes to the numismatic legacy of Baldwin’s Vaquero, the California Gold Rush and the Ship of Gold recovery.
