Description & Analysis

In a period of very low proof sales, the mintage figure for 1900 rose to its highest level since 1892. This is almost certainly the result of persons seeking souvenirs of the new century, even though that didn't actually begin until 1901.

Fully red gems are rare for this date, as are those displaying nice cameo contrast. This is an odd situation, as the other proof denominations of 1900 typically have excellent contrast.
