    1915-S Panama-Pacific Round Fifty Dollar
    Unc Details

    1915-S $50 Panama-Pacific 50 Dollar Round -- Rim Repair -- NGC Details. Unc Details.
    The Panama-Pacific Exposition was a dual celebration: The completion of the canal connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and the recovery of San Francisco from the devastating earthquake of 1906. The Exposition itself was a stunning celebration carried out in numerous halls scattered across the grounds. Landscape architecture and water displays were also important visual features. Official coinage and medals were struck that left a permanent legacy of this significant cultural event. The fifty dollar gold pieces borrowed heavily from antiquity and their original cases explained the Classical derivations on each coin.

    For the collector looking for the best value in a Round Pan-Pac fifty, this piece should receive careful consideration. The surfaces have been lightly wiped, diminishing the original vibrancy of the mint luster, and the Rim Repair referred to on the insert is an area of slight rim filing at 2 o'clock on the obverse. The only other mentionable defect we see is a shallow horizontal scratch on the left side of the reverse. But to the casual observer, this is an impressive example of this Classically inspired and always-popular design.
