A spectacular gold proof! Liberty proof gold is the beach front property of the rare coin market and this is a spectacular beauty. Like all proof Liberty gold, the original mintage of the 1896 is low…specifically only 132 coins for the entire year. Of those, it is estimated that just 60 to 80 survive today in all grades. And Gems are ultra rare. This specimen is one of the finest. It is one of only four examples graded PR67 Deep Cameo by PCGS in the past 36 years, and only four have been graded higher. The surfaces are ultra deeply mirrored and highly reflective. The devices are thick white Cameo. The eye appeal jumps out of the holder. An Amazing Gem example of this gold rarity.
