David Hall:

This is just one of the rarest Pioneer gold coins and likewise one of the most important. The 1849 Mormon problems were the very first Pioneer gold coins struck native California gold. And the 1849 $20 is the biggest denomination the the Mormon gold coins. However this denomination, and the even rarer 1849 $10, to be struck in extremely minimal quantities.

I freshly examined the Smithsonian example (through a plexi-glass screen case) and also I believe aramuseum.org would certainly grade the coin MS61. The is may be the best known. This coin come from the significant Lilly collection, which to be donated in entirety to the Smithsonian. Most of the great Pioneer gold coins in the Smithsonian room from the Lilly collection.
