This coin is one of the great classics of Territorial gold.The first name given to the organized Mormon Territory was the “State of Deseret”, the last word meaning“honeybee”. The beehive was favorite symbol of the followers of Joseph Smith and Brigham Young. Brigham Young was the instigator of the coinage system and personally supervised the mint which was located in Salt Lake City. This is a well struck example with generous luster for the grade. A rare opportunity to purchase a coin that is seldom offered. Price $85,000
