Wonderful Collection of Charlotte Mint $5s Highlights July Auction

by Heritage Auctions

Published on July 18, 2021

Between generally low mintages and also the fact that these mints only stuck around as operational facilities for a relatively brief time, C and D mint gold is scarce and popular with collectors today.

Not everyone realizes that Georgia and North Carolina once had their own short-lived mints that produced coins for circulation. The Charlotte, NC and Dahlonega, GA mints were only in operation for a fairly short period of time and were created to capitalize on the new discovery of gold in the South, turning raw metal into coins for commerce!

If you combine that with the fact that these mints are famous for having been taken over by the Confederacy during the Civil War, then you really have a recipe for hot collector's items!

Having a few pieces of Charlotte or Dahlonega gold coins in any auction is news enough, but Heritage will be offering a rarely-seen selection of $5 gold pieces all minted at the Charlotte Mint in upcoming US Coin July sale 1332. If you are building a Southern or C-mint date set, look no further!
