Description & Analysis

The official mintage figure for the 1900 proof gold half eagle is 230 pieces. However, this date seems to be no more common than other dates in the series. It is possible that some of the original mintage was destroyed as unsold. This date often comes with at least a cameo contrast, and some have even been graded with the Ultra Cameo designation by NGC.
