Peru: 1965 G50S
NGC MS67
Inquire $1,575.00 - SOLD - 9/22/2011

Peru: 1965 G50S, KM#242, 50 Soles, .900 Gold, .6772oz, NGC MS-67. Superb gem uncirculated Peruvian gold coin struck to commemorate the 400th Anniversary of the Lima Mint. Virtually flawless surfaces and fully struck, this specimen appears destined for an even higher grade. Amazing large size gold coin.

One of the finest certified pieces of this historic issue from Peru, celebrating the 400th anniversary of the Mint in Lima. Compared to United States gold coinage, this piece has an intermediate size between an eagle and double eagle, and contains 0.6772 Oz of pure gold. Its design has been popular with collectors all over the world, thanks to the relation with coins (as can be expected for a coin celebrating a Mint anniversary). The obverse features a so-called “coin on coin” topic, with the design of a 16th century doubloon, and the date 1565-1965. Part of an interesting set of gold coins minted in the 1960s, which have become increasingly hard to find individually. This is a high grade example of the 50 Soles denomination, virtually flawless and well struck. No blemishes are noted on the obverse, and a few minor flecks on the reverse keep it out of an even higher grade holder.
