    1876 Gold Dollar, PR65 Ultra Cameo
    American Centennial Memento

    1876 G$1 PR65 Ultra Cameo NGC. In 1876 officials from the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia invited Mint officials to set up a coinage display, but they declined. Nonetheless, the 1876 gold proof coins saw a marked increase to 45 pieces of each denomination from the 20-coin proof gold mintages that bookend it on either side. The greater production was likely in anticipation of higher demand due to the Centennial. While some examples were likely melted as unsold later, the significance of the date also likely meant that the remaining specimens were likelier to be preserved. Somewhere around 25 to 35 pieces appear to survive today. This piece boasts optimal contrast over orange-gold surfaces that reveal a bold strike and no singular marks. A loupe reveals a few field hairlines of little account. Census: 3 in 65 Ultra Cameo, 4 finer (7/14).(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 25EK, PCGS# 97626)

    Weight: 1.70 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
