    1915-S Panama Pacific Gold Dollar, MS67
    Eye-Appealing, Unsurpassed Technical Quality

    1915-S G$1 Panama-Pacific Gold Dollar MS67 PCGS. CAC. The Panama-Pacific gold dollar is the smallest of four gold coins issued for the International Exposition held along San Francisco's waterfront in 1915. The bill authorizing the production of the coins, including up to 25,000 gold dollars, was signed into law by President Wilson on January 16, 1915 -- just over one month prior to the opening of the fair. Charles Keck was tasked with designing the small gold pieces, for which he submitted four preliminary models. Ultimately, the chosen design featured a slightly modified version of his original canal worker obverse design, while his dolphin-motif reverse was approved as initially conceived. As authorized, 25,000 examples were minted plus 26 assay coins. The destruction of 10,000 unsold dollars resulted in a net mintage of just 15,000 pieces.

    Softly frosted luster blankets the peach and sun-gold surfaces of this incredible Superb Gem. CAC has awarded this piece a coveted green approval sticker for eye appeal and quality within the grade, a claim only 12% of comparably graded examples can make. The strike is needle-sharp, and as one would expect for an MS67 representative, marks are virtually non-existent. Population: 63 in 67, 0 finer (2/15).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# BYLH, PCGS# 7449)

    Weight: 1.70 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
