    Tied for Finest 1915-S Panama-Pacific Gold Dollar, MS67

    1915-S G$1 Panama-Pacific Gold Dollar MS67 PCGS. CAC. The Panama-Pacific International Exposition was held in San Francisco in 1915, and celebrated the opening of the Panama Canal. The actual Central American facility was constructed to conveniently link the Atlantic and Pacific oceans to shipping, without the need for an overland portage, or a voyage around South America. As part of the 1915 celebration, numismatist Farran Zerbe embarked on an ambitious offering, including commemorative half dollars, gold dollars, quarter eagles, and fifty dollar pieces, the latter in two different shapes to further promote sales.
    The gold dollar features a profile of a canal laborer and the reverse features two dolphins. At the time they were issued, and even today, there are some who mistook the obverse figure for that of a baseball player. This Superb Gem is an amazing example with virtually flawless surfaces. Both sides are highly lustrous with frosty yellow and pink-gold surfaces. A few splashes of coppery toning are also visible on the obverse and the reverse. Population: 47 in 67, 0 finer (4/08).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# BYLH, PCGS# 7449)

    Weight: 1.70 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
