    MS66 1999-P Anthony Dollar on an
    Experimental Planchet

    1999-P $1 Anthony Dollar -- Struck on an Experimental Planchet -- MS66 PCGS. Alloy listed as 73% copper, 25% zinc, and 2% nickel, a never-adopted combination. Issued Anthony dollars are copper-nickel. In 1999, the Mint was testing alloys for a new dollar coin that would have a gold appearance yet possess the same electromagnetic signature as the then-current Anthony dollar. Several 1999- and 2000-dated Statehood quarters and Anthony dollars were struck in various experimental alloys. Presumably, those pieces should have been destroyed, but not all were. This example is primarily sea-green, but has dashes of rose and gold toning. Well-preserved but softly struck on the olive branch, LIBERTY, and the top of the hair. The rims retain the rough texture of the planchet prior to the strike.

    Coin Index Numbers: (PCGS# 89581)
