Finest Known is THE place to call if you are looking for the “best of the best” available in certified historical commemoratives and commemorative restrikes.

For more than five years, for example, Finest Known has been the industry leader in California Gold Rush commemorative coins, including the stunning Kellogg “Quintuple Eagle”—a huge, 2-1/2 oz. pure unparted California Gold Rush gold commemorative restrike of the famous $50 gold “slug” minted by California Gold Rush assayers Kellogg & Humbert, and a unique and beautiful collectible authorized by the California Historical Society in San Francisco, California.

In addition to the “Quintuple Eagle,” Finest Known also offers a number of other commemoratives, including…

Forty-Niner Horseman “Ship of Gold” Commemorative Offer:

Here’s a fantastic “get-acquainted” deal on what may well be the best value you’ll find on a historically-significant, certified California Gold Rush commemorative—the Forty-Niner Horseman, struck from original unparted California Gold Rush gold recovered from the 1857 shipwreck of the SS Central America, the “Ship of Gold.”

The Forty-Niner Horseman is a truly gorgeous coin…its design is based on one of the most beautiful and most valuable Gold Rush artifacts known, the 1850 $10 Baldwin Horseman. The striking dies for the Forty-Niner Horseman commemorative were hand-carved using 1850s-era tools and methods, and based on the finest-known, mint-state 1850 Baldwin $10 Horseman in existence.

That unique Gold Rush era coin today is valued at hundreds of thousands of dollars. Yet the Forty-Niner Horseman “Ship of Gold” Commemorative—struck by the Royal Canadian Mint and certified by PCGS as Gem-Proof condition—is offered to first-time Finest Known customers for just $1,595, a small fraction of the price you’d have to pay for any of the original Baldwin Horseman coins, and far less than recent prices realized even for the cheap knock-off “tin” restrikes of the Baldwin Horseman produced by a New York coin dealer circa 1909.

With a minting strictly limited to just 4,000 coins, these Forty-Niner Horseman Commemoratives will make a tremendous addition to any rare coin portfolio. Each coin is certified Gem-Proof by PCGS.

In early 2006, prices for the Forty-Niner Horseman “Ship of Gold” Commemoratives in the secondary market were running far higher than the low prices available from Finest Known. In fact, in two separate Heritage auctions, two of the Forty-Niner Horseman coins sold for $1,955 and $2,185 each—as much as 37% higher than Finest Known’s price!
