Description

1868 Dual-Denomination Five Dollar-25 Francs
Judd-656, PR66 Brown

1868 $5 Dual Denomination $5-25 Francs, Judd-656, Pollock-729, Low R.7, PR66 Brown NGC. Judd-656 is the first attempt at an international coinage, inspired by discussions at the international monetary convention held in Paris in June of 1867. The proposed unit was to be based on the French franc, with a gold composition. Judd-656 was a pattern for a U.S. five dollar gold coin of 124 and 9/20 grains, equivalent to a 25 franc piece. Struck in copper, with a reeded edge.
The present coin is a splendid Premium Gem specimen, with an exquisite strike and attractive medium-brown patina. The fields are brightly reflective under the patina, and display hints of copper-red when tilted in the light.
From The Bob Simpson Collection. (PCGS# 60874)
