Product Description

Discover history with the 1857 SS Central America 1.5 Gram Gold Pinch, available now at BGASC. This unique piece originates from the SS Central America shipwreck, a side-wheel steamship that succumbed to a powerful 1857 hurricane off the Carolinas while carrying California Gold Rush treasures from Panama to New York City.


  • Gold arrives in a PCGS plastic slab!
  • Salvaged from the seafloor amid the wreckages of the SS Central America!
  • Certified by the PCGS as authentic SS Central America gold!
  • Contains roughly 1.5 Grams (.0482 Troy oz) of actual gold.
  • Gold pinch is encapsulated for protection.

The SS Central America’s sinking was a pivotal moment in maritime history, claiming over 400 lives and causing a significant economic impact. The panic had repercussions beyond the borders of the United States. It contributed to a global economic downturn, affecting trade and finance in other parts of the world, including Europe. Now, you can own a piece of this history with the 1857 SS Central America 1.5 Gram Gold Pinch, certified by the PCGS and encapsulated for protection.

Product Details

Your gold pinch comes from the depths of the Atlantic Ocean, where it lay undisturbed for over 130 years. The PCGS has certified its authenticity, ensuring you own a genuine piece of the SS Central America wreckage. Housed in a capsule within a protective plastic slab, your gold is not only secure but also comes with the assurance of its SS Central America origin.


Commodity prices, including those of important staples like wheat, declined sharply. Additionally, the Panic of 1857 had a significant impact on the gold rush economy in the Western United States, as the price of gold dropped, and many prospectors faced economic difficulties.
