This pattern was struck in both standard silver and metric alloys, but NGC does not make this distinction on their inserts. However, for its 2001 Heritage auction appearance, the present piece was sent to the ANA, where their Authentication Plus service evaluated the planchet to be a metric alloy of 94% silver, 2% gold, and 4% copper. These percentages vary somewhat from the Mint's intended metric alloy of 89.58% silver, 0.42% gold, and 10% copper. Since gold is present in this planchet, however, it undoubtedly falls into the metric classification. For comparison, the Mint's standard silver alloy is 90% silver and 10% copper.
A beautiful Gem, the surfaces are uniformly mirrored beneath dappled sun-gold toning. Fully struck, and undisturbed aside from light horizontal marks on the central reverse.
