    A Stunning Example of this Highly Coveted Rarity
    Mintage of Only 143

    Republic gold 100 Francs 1894-A MS64 PCGS, Paris mint, KM832, Fr-590, Gad-1137. A truly outstanding specimen, and one that is virtually unrivaled in both grade and appearance, with resplendent golden luster and fully-raised design elements that soar above the surfaces. Struck from noticeably fresh dies, this offering displays exceptionally clean fields along with underlying as-made die-polish lines that only seem to add another layer of dimension to this already exquisite selection. At present time, this is singularly the finest-known certified example of this date--which is also the key to the Genius 100 Francs series--that boasts an unbelievably small mintage of just 143 pieces. Decidedly unique in technical quality and scarce in availability, this major rarity absolutely deserves the full attention of collectors who accepts only the best.
