I've seen these done before. Since the die was canceled, I believe it is legal. They are selling it as what it is; a cancelled die strike, and a gold coin on a silver planchet, at that.

I have seen the silver dollars that were struck with the cancelled dies, they were really interesting and sold by the mint to raise money for the museum. I believe they could have done trial stikes with other dies. I just wish I had bought the dollars when I saw them.

This lot contains the sample cancelled die strikes from the Carson City Mint. In the late 1990s the Carson City mint wanted to attract attention to its revamped coin show and wanted something exciting for their raffle to draw in coin collectors. They decided to strike silver bars with cancelled dies from the mint vaults. The first years -1884 Morgan silver dollar, face and Reverse. -"CC" Reverse Seated Liberty dime. -Inset Five Dollar 188x Gold piece.
The second years grand prize was a 10oz Faberge silver bar displaying two strikes of cancelled "CC" mint dies. This bar displayed the cancelled 1876-CC Seated Liberty Silver Half Dollar obverse & Reverse dies side by side.
Some of these samples were from dies that were later used for the silver bar grand prize and some were from dies that were never used. There are also sample cancelled die strikes from rusted dies that were dug up from the field adjacent to the mint while putting in the new mint parking lot. Workers brought the dies to the mint museum and the mind had Don Schmitz clean them to find out which dies they were. Through cleaning and striking samples Don discovered they were Trade dollar dies from 1877 as well as a half & quarter die. Eight of those sample strikes from the discovered rusted dies are in this collection.
Struck as samples were two sided cancelled die strikes to be raffled and sold in a small quantity. A two ounce silver planchet with the Morgan dollar 1884 cancelled obverse and the 1878-CC reverse and an 1876-CC Seated Liberty half dollar struck obverse and reverse by cancelled dies. The cancelled 2oz silver Morgan dollar strike was chose and 170 were struck. Only the original examples of the two sided Seated Liberty half dollar cancelled die strikes were ever struck.
Also struck but never sold were a one ounce silver Morgan struck by 1884 obverse and 1878-CC reverse cancelled die strike. A one of a kind 1oz silver cancelled 1884 Morgan obverse with the reverse Faberge with a beautiful design. The other two sided cancelled die strike is an octagonal bronze planchet with the 1884 Morgan obverse and the 1878-CC reverse.

1) 1884-CC obverse Morgan dollar canceled die strike 1oz size bronze struck one sided.
2) 1878-CC reverse Morgan dollar canceled die strike. Small CC mint mark and concaved breast make this an 1878 reverse. *Both obverse and reverse Morgan dies are on display in the CC mint Museum.
3) 1oz octagonal bronze medallion stuck by 1884 canceled obverse and 1878 CC canceled reverse.
4) 1883-CC obverse $5 Gold Liberty Head Half Eagle canceled die strike. This sample strike is on a bronze half eagle round.
