    So I would never intentionally buy a fake or replica coin. Unless I knew for sure it is absolutely impossible for me, or for anyone to own one.

    So ladies and gentlemen, may I present to you-

    Copy of the 1849 Double Eagle

    I paid very handsomely for this specimen. 1/20th of its face value.
    Thanks for reading!

    I doubt anyone but the Smithsonian will ever own an original one.;)

    Hey, for the price of one dollar I think you did okay. It's certainly a conversation piece.

    I have seen Gold foiled chocolate coins dated 1849 before.

    Because I love the liberty head design. I hope to own a collection of them one day

    Depends on whether or not the other one ever shows up again. Heck even the gilt copper one would be great to have if it ever shows up again.

    There were two at one time, right? One's just missing. Two proofs were struck December 22, 1849.
