1850 Five Dollar Gold Mormon Coin Restrikes

1850 $5 Gold Mormon Coin Restrikes

1850 Mormon gold coin restrikes are actually more difficult to locate than the authentic gold coins.  This fact does by no means make the restrikes more valuable.  These restrikes are very easy to spot because they were struck on brass.  The restrikes also only feature one side of the coin.  The reverse of the restrikes is completely blank.

The restrikes were executed some time around 1900.  However, there is no exact explanation for why they were created.
