Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: Despite a very large mintage, most were destroyed during the great gold melts of the 1930s. At one time this issue was considered a major rarity. Starting in the 1950s, coins began to trickle in from European banks in small numbers. Today, around 1,000 coins are known; most in the lower ranges of Mint State. Gem examples are very rare with less than 10 certified by NGC. A single coin has been graded by NGC as MS 66. The Smithsonian example (likely from the Lilly collection) grades just MS 63.
