Jaime Hernandez:

Templeton Reid was a very talented man from the early 1800's. Some of his talents included being a jeweler, watch maker, gunsmith, metal worker. He also knew how to us a lathe, press, calipers and several other tools to work with metal which included gold.

In the summer of 1830, Templeton Reid saw the opportunity to Mint gold coins due to the lack of coins in circulation and because of the discovery of gold in Northern Georgia. Reid struck coins in denominations of $2.5, $5 and $10. Today, all coins are considered very scarce and some very rare. The $2.5 coins are scarce and possibly no more than 15 examples exist in all grades combined.
