Kagin’s Coin Stories: The Moffat 1853 $20 Private Gold Coin

Kagin’s Inc. is a California-based coin firm that specializes in rare U.S. coins, paper money, private issues from the California Gold Rush, and other unusual and rarely-encountered numismatic items. The company was thrust into the national spotlight in 2014 after it announced the discovery of an amazing hoard of 19th-century United States gold coins that was buried for more than a century on a private residence in California’s gold region.
