In the 1870s, a coin shortage was causing problems for westerners. To solve the issue, Nevada Senator John P. Jones, who had interests in the silver pouring from the Comstock Lode, worked to introduce a 90% silver 20¢ piece. Similar in size and design to the quarter, the two were easily confused. So after just two years, the 20¢ denomination was no longer struck for circulation. Now, 140 years later, these coins are scarce and in great demand among collectors! These examples of the only San Francisco issue are among the few survivors and offer an affordable way to own the century-old collector favorites. Each 1875-S coin comes in a FREE custom holder and display box ready to give or display – order today!
