    Premium Gem Cameo Proof
    1887 Gold Dollar

    1887 G$1 PR66 Cameo PCGS. The later-date gold dollar proofs were popular as Christmas gifts and saved in far greater numbers than their earlier counterparts. Astute dealers and numismatists also foresaw the series' end and ordered specimens directly from the Mint or in aftermarket sales. Nonetheless, few high-grade examples show the marked cameo contrast between fields and devices of the present Premium Gem. The sparkling yellow-gold mirrors exhibit the slightest orange tinge at the edges. The official mintage for proofs in this year is 1,043 pieces, typical for the 1884-88 timeframe in the series. Population: 5 in 66 Cameo, 2 finer (9/11).
    Ex: ANA Signature (Heritage, 7/2005), lot 7321.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 25EX, PCGS# 87637)

    Weight: 1.70 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
