Pleasing, Always Popular 1915-S Panama-Pacific Octagonal Gold Fifty Dollars, MS63 PCGS

1915-S $50 Panama-Pacific 50 Dollar Octagonal MS63 PCGS. Struck on the eve of America's involvement in the First World War, the Greek helmet is pushed back on Minerva's head in a ready but not fully combative posture. The owl on the reverse signifies watchfulness. Minted in slightly larger numbers than the round commemorative of similar design (645 vs. 483 pieces), the equally massive octagonal piece adds dolphins about the borders symbolizing America's desire to keep the Panama Canal open throughout the term of the Great War. Both obverse and reverse of this massive issue exhibit a bright, glossy luster over surfaces that exhibit rich orange-gold color. The only grade-limiting factors are a minor facial mark and modest friction on the owl's leg and wing feathers. A pleasing and well preserved example of this famous and perennially popular type. (#7452) (NGC ID# BYHP, PCGS# 7452)
