Appealing K-19 Moffat Twenty Dollar, AU551853 $20 Moffat & Co. Twenty Dollar AU55 NGC. CAC. K-19, High R.5. The Moffat twenty dollar gold pieces were produced toward the twilight of the Territorial gold issues of the California Gold Rush, in response to one of the recurring shortages of gold coinage that were so prevalent in the region until the years following 1854, when the San Francisco Mint officially opened for production. The last issue from the well-respected Moffat firm, the K-19 double eagle is similar in design to the federal issue that it imitates. This lovely Choice AU piece is well struck and essentially problem-free. Light reddish patina surrounds the devices on both sides, increasing the appeal. Listed on page 365 of the 2009 Guide Book.
