I had to go to the bank today , on my way back I seen a park and decided to give it a go . The first coin I dug was a wheat cent , the second was this CSA $20 coin . It turns out to be a novelty coin . It is a replica of what would have been a 1861 Confederate States of America $20 gold coin . It did make my heart skip beat .
