Description

MS66 1999-P Anthony Dollar on an
Experimental Planchet

1999-P $1 Anthony Dollar -- Struck on an Experimental Planchet -- MS66 PCGS. Alloy listed as 73% copper, 25% zinc, and 2% nickel, a never-adopted combination. Issued Anthony dollars are copper-nickel. In 1999, the Mint was testing alloys for a new dollar coin that would have a gold appearance yet possess the same electromagnetic signature as the then-current Anthony dollar. Several 1999- and 2000-dated Statehood quarters and Anthony dollars were struck in various experimental alloys. Presumably, those pieces should have been destroyed, but not all were. This example is primarily sea-green, but has dashes of rose and gold toning. Well-preserved but softly struck on the olive branch, LIBERTY, and the top of the hair. The rims retain the rough texture of the planchet prior to the strike. (NGC ID# 259C, PCGS# 89581)
