Choice Matte Proof 1909 Five Dollar Gold

1909 $5 PR64 PCGS. Gold proofs of 1909 and 1910 are of great interest to gold collectors because of the type of matte finish used in just these two years. This so-called "Roman Gold" finish is a curious mixture between a brilliant and matte proof, giving the coin a semi-brilliant, satiny appearance. These have often been confused with high-grade business strikes, but seen side by side one can easily see a difference in the texture of the surfaces. This is an extraordinary example that shows no obvious contact marks or shiny spots on either side. The satiny gold surfaces show just a trace of pale olive-green color. Very rare. Population: 12 in 64, 7 finer (10/04).(#8540) (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25ZS, PCGS# 8540)
