    2000-P 'Cheerios' Dollar
    Discovery Coin MS66
    With Goodacre Presentation Dollar

    2000-P $1 Cheerios MS66 NGC. The discovery coin of the now-famous Cheerios dollar variety, so named because nearly all known examples were originally found in occasional boxes of Cheerios cereal as part of a U.S. Mint promotion of the new series. Five years later, collector Pat Braddick noticed a design difference: the tail feathers of his Cheerios dollar had diagonal detail absent on normal business strikes. On June 20, 2005, NGC certified Braddick's coin as the discovery specimen for the pattern Cheerios dollar.
    This lot includes: one MS66 2000-P Cheerios dollar certified as the discovery specimen by NGC; a 2000 cent still housed in pristine Cheerios plastic packaging; one scarce presentation finish 2000-P Sacagawea dollar given by the U.S. Mint to its obverse designer, Glenna Goodacre, who has autographed the ICG holder that holds the coin; a 2000-P Sacagawea dollar in a small custom holder that bears an autograph from Sacagawea model Randy'L He-dow Teton; and a folder. This folder houses the 2000 Cheerios cent along with an NGC photo proof of the discovery coin and copies of various Cheerios-related correspondence, NGC press releases, and Coin World articles.
