A Complete Type Set of the Gold Coins of the Central American Republic
It is not difficult to complete a type set of CAR gold, coins minted in Guatemala and Costa Rica from the 1820s until 1850! For rare, historically important, and attractive 19th century gold rarities, market prices are not high, from a logical perspective.
Many CAR gold coins cost less than $1000 each; some can be had for less than $250. While 4 Escudos and 8 Escudos coins are much more expensive, these tend to be available every year.
Many examples are cited in the current article. Also, Andy Lustig is quoted.
Do the members of this forum agree that most (not all) CAR gold coins are excellent values? Does anyone not like them?
