Cuba (struck in Philadelphia), 20 pesos, 1915, José Marti, encapsulated NGC AU-58. KM-21. Very lustrous, just a few contact marks here and there, curiously minted in the U.S. using dies engraved by Charles Barber. This coin was very popular in the mid-1970s after a proof specimen was sold by Christensen for $40,000, the record at the time for the highest price ever paid at auction for a Latin American gold coin, and the same coin soon escalated to six figures by a subsequent owner, while another was offered at auction by Almanzar estimated at $20,000.
