Gold Commem. 1915-S MS 64 NGC Panama-Pacific Expo. $50 Round
Full nearly Gem mint luster. The surfaces are nearly blemish-free, providing the outward appearance of perhaps a higher graded example of this classic rarity. The official mintage for the 1915-S Pan-Pac Slug is 1,500 Round examples and 1,500 Octagonal examples (plus an additional 10 and 9 pieces, respectively, for Assay purposes). A glance at the A Guide Book of United States Coins, however, reveals significantly lower totals for each variety the Round being 483 coins. One may assume that one or more sources may have made an error in reporting the true mintages for these coins; we note that the Guide Book figures represent only the total number of coins actually sold.
