Description:The third an final issuance of Mormon gold coinage featuring a new design displaying a crouched Lion of Judah on the obverse surrounded by the same inscription as previous gold types, "Holiness to the Lord", but in the invented Deseret language. The reverse features a spread-winged eagle with a beehive in front which is still a symbol found on the Utah state flag as well as its nickname "The Beehive State". Struck on planchets of finer gold from bullion brought from the Colorado gold fields opposed to the earlier issues which were made with gold dust from California. While accounts offer slightly different mintages overall the total mintage is thought to be less than 800 pieces with some sources placing it at less than 500 before production was stopped in 1861. With less than one hundred pieces currently on the NGC and PCGS populations it can be assumed that many of that original mintage eventually found their way into the hands of the U.S. Treasury where they would have been melted down and re-coined making the surviving pieces a rare breed indeed. This example is tied with seven others at this grade level with only three others achieving one point higher.
