In 1877, the U.S. Mint produced two solid gold pattern coins with a denomination of $50. The two pattern coins had differing designs and were minted as trials for the proposed $50 denomination. Nicknamed a "Half Union" (as $100 gold coins were known as "Unions"), the coins never got full congressional approval, and the program ended before full production began.
Some experts have estimated the value of the "Small Head Variant" - the first $50 gold pattern minted - to be an astounding $15 million! However, as part of the Smithsonian collection, the coin cannot be sold and is considered to be priceless.
