AU Capital Management President Russ Augustin teams up with CoinWeek to tell the behind-the-scenes stories of the great gold coins of American history.

In this episode, Russ talks about the fascinating 1850 Baldwin $10 gold coin, a private-issue gold coin struck at the height of the California Gold Rush.

It is a coin steeped in the lore of the old west and connected to a scandalous and fascinating period of American coinage, where private mints struck gold coins of dubious value and a whole new American economy was forming thousands of miles away from the control of the United States federal government.

Today, the coin is exceptionally rare… and valuable.

You will enjoy this exclusive take from a leading dealer, who has handled this great rarity numerous times, placing examples of it in some of the great collections of this era.
