    1915-S Round Pan-Pac Fifty Dollar
    Sharp AU Details
    Collector-Grade Example

    1915-S $50 Panama-Pacific 50 Dollar Round -- Cleaned -- PCGS Genuine. AU Details. Ex: The Blue Hill Collection. The 1915-S Round Pan-Pac fifty dollar gold piece is distinguished as the lowest-distribution issue in the entire classic commemorative series. Only 483 coins were sold to collectors and fair-goers at the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition, leaving a remainder of more than 1,000 coins that were melted as unsold. This issue -- as well as its Octagonal counterpart -- represents the biggest "stopper" to a complete United States commemorative coin collection.

    This piece offers a rare opportunity to acquire a more affordable example of the issue. Hairlines on each side deny a numeric grade, and the faintest trace of rub -- likely from the cleaning -- leads PCGS to assign an AU Details designation. Nonetheless, to the unaided eye, the coin appears unworn, and the hairlines are not obvious. This is an appealing coin that will appeal to numerous classic commemorative collectors looking for an obtainable Round Pan-Pac fifty.
