    2008 Private Issue Commemorative Gold Piece
    2.5 Troy Ounces Octagonal 'California Gold'

    2008 "Humbert Commemorative" Gem Proof Ultra Cameo NGC. Struck in 2008 from gold recovered from the S.S. Central America shipwreck but not an official U.S. Mint issue. Some of the motifs and design replicate features from the original U.S. Assay Office fifty-dollar gold pieces done under the authority of Augustus Humbert in 1852. The reverse legend confirms its modern issue. Struck in Ultra Cameo proof format, encapsulated by NGC and certified for 999.9 Thous fineness, no other documentation included. (PCGS# 10361)
