    1849 Mormon Five Dollar, K-2, XF40
    Brigham Young-Supervised Coinage

    1849 $5 Mormon Five Dollar XF40 PCGS. CAC. K-2, R.5. An event related to the California Gold Rush are the 1849 Mormon gold coins produced in the "State of Deseret" that included all of present day Utah, nearly all of Nevada, most of Arizona, and parts of California, New Mexico, Oregon, Idaho, and Wyoming. The following year, the Compromise of 1850 established Utah Territory, a smaller but still substantial region that included all of the present day state of Utah, as well as all but the Southern corner of Nevada, part of Colorado, and the southwestern corner of Wyoming.
    This pleasing 1849 Mormon five, housed in a green-label PCGS holder, exhibits bright green-gold surfaces with hints of subdued orange toning along the borders. Faint hairlines are present, as nearly always on these coins. A few planchet flaws and other minor imperfections are also evident. Listed on page 380 of the 2012 Guide Book. Population: 27 in 40, 51 finer (9/11). (NGC ID# 2BCE, PCGS# 10262)
