The matte surface for this year and the next is the briefly used Roman Gold finish. This semi-brilliant proofing process gives the piece a bright, satiny appearance with a pale lemon-gold color (here beneath a pale reddish tint), obviously quite different from the traditional matte finish. Roman Gold Tens are very rarely seen today and infrequently appear at major auctions. Population: 26 in 64, 12 finer (9/01).
