Description

1903 Louisiana Purchase Exposition Gold Dollar. Jefferson Portrait. Proof-66 (PCGS).

This gold Commemorative issue has a net mintage of approximately 17,500 pieces, the first 100 coins of which are brilliant finish proofs. These special specimen strikings were distributed in large cardboard pages with certificates signed by John M. Landis and Rhine R. Freed, superintendent and chief coiner of the Philadelphia Mint, respectively. Probably about half of these coins have survived in various states of preservation, the finest examples listed at PCGS and NGC having received a numeric grade of Proof-66 or Proof-67.
Included in this highly select group, the premium-quality Gem in this lot has even green-gold color and a mostly mirrored finish. We say "mostly" because Jefferson's portrait on the obverse has a decided satin texture that provides some cameo contrast to the appearance on that side of the coin. Neither side reveals even a single detracting blemish, and the eye appeal is nothing short of exquisite. A very rare coin, and one that will serve as a highlight of any numismatic holding.

PCGS#: 7482
