Set Description:

The Louisiana Purchase is a collection of New Orleans gold coins of all dominations. The coins in this set are carefully selected in almost every case for their originality and eye appeal, considering the date. Almost all coins are at the high end of the census, with many condition census, and several finest known. Several are also pedigreed to interesting, famous collectors. For example, the collectin contains three Eliasberg coins, and several from Bass and Pittman.

I use as a general reference Doug Winter's "Gold Coins of the New Orleans Mint 1839 - 1909", published in 2006.

I will be adding coins to the registry listing regularly throughout 2008, and aim to including some interesting, informative (and hopefully accurate) history of the coin itself, the date in general or both, as well as give an indication of rarity. In fact, as of August of 2008, every coin listed now has a description. While I am a specialist in this branch mint, I have been at this hobby for only a few years. During that time, I was fortunate to come across many interesting New Orleans coins.

I find New Orleans coins very interesting in part because they span a long time period and five dominations. There are actually five one-year type coins, and coins without and with the "In God We Trust" motto, and several listed varieties. There are also some yet-to-be-listed varieties, such as the 1840-O Half Eagle Broad Mill. Many coins have interesting stories relating to the history of the branch mint. The dates and domininations range from the most famous to the obscure. The Double Eagles in this series are some of the most difficult to collect, due to their rarity and the fact that many (most?) coins are no longer original.

The double eagles in this set, "Louisana Double Eagles", are also part of a Type 1 (No Motto) Double Eagle collection, called the "Gadsden Purchase". I will also be cataloging this set over the course of the year.

I apologize in advance that I have yet to tackle the project of creating images for the coins, but will do so at some point in time.

Please see the individual collections (e.g. Louisiana Quarter Eagles) for more information on each denomination of the collection.

Note also that many duplicates are listed under "Jefferson's Change".
