I don't usually buy gold coins but I really like this one. I originally saw it on an auction a couple of years ago but didn't bid on it. I've kicked myself in the butt ever since. Happily, this coin came up for bids recently. This time I bid on it and got it for a very good price. I guess everyone else was sleeping. This coin has a mintage of 651,659 in Proof grades. It was minted at West Point. Being in Proof 70 Ultra Cameo the designs really pop out. Both the obverse and reverse engravings are spectacular and inspiring. Being only .008 of an ounce less pure gold than the new Standing Liberty Commemorative, I think I got a lot better coin for a lot less money. Just my opinion. I could be wrong! Thanks for looking!
