Just saw the news on MSN.

The coin was one of a seven-piece collection that were put up at auction, and represents one of a series of coins made in the 1840s when the church first settled Utah.

Looked it up on the internet and the $10 Mormon gold coin had a picture of an eye wearing what could possibly be a baker's hat and the inscription, "All Holiness to the Lord" on one side and on the other side was a secret handshake, date, denomination and the words, "PURE GOLD".

Seems the Church's on-line store is selling a copy for just $2.50.

Makes me wonder why they didn't put Joseph Smith's or Brigham Young's image on the coin.
