    1856 Fairmont Collection Coins

    In the 1850s, the political and cultural divide in the United States grew to a level not yet seen in the young nation’s history. The 1850s was marked by a series of attempts to appease pro- and anti-slavery movements in the United States. In 1856, in particular, a presidential election took place, with the Democratic candidate James Buchanan winning against Republican John C. Frémont and American Party candidate Millard Fillmore. Buchanan became the 15th President of the United States, succeeding Franklin Pierce. Additionally, the Kansas Territory experienced a period of violent conflict known as “Bleeding Kansas.” Pro-slavery and anti-slavery forces clashed, leading to significant bloodshed and contributing to the escalating tensions over slavery in the United States. From this era of US history, 1856 Fairmont Collection Coins are available at JM Bullion.

    In 1856, the $20 Liberty Gold Double Eagle was still a new coin in circulation in the United States. With proof, or pattern, coins struck in 1849, the first $20 Double Eagles were produced for circulation in 1850. In 1856, three branch mints had a hand in producing the $20 Liberty Gold Double Eagle. The New Orleans Mint issued the fewest number by far at just 2,250 coins in total. The Philadelphia Mint issued 329,878 coins, while the San Francisco Mint struck a staggering 1,189,750 coins in this series.
