Peru: 1965 100S, KM#243, 100 Soles, 46.8071g, .900
fine gold, 1.3544 Oz. POP 8 in MS66 / 5 better. This
giant (nearly an ounce and a half) Peruvian gold coin
was struck to commemorate the 400th Anniversary of
the Lima Mint. Absolutely spectacular gold coin and
in our opinion much nicer than MS-66.
1965 Peru G100S Lima Mint Anniversary (KM243). Offered
here is an example of the largest denomination in
a series of gold coins to celebrate the 400th Anniversary
of the Lima Mint in Peru. Extremely large, this gold
coin contains nearly 1 ½ ounce of gold (1.3544
Oz to be exact).
Scarce and increasingly popular, the obverse features
a reproduction of the popular Doubloon minted for
centuries in Peru and other countries in South-America
for several decades. The date is listed as 1565-1965,
and this “coin on coin” design is a popular
topic in specialized collections. Collecting by design
features is extremely popular in the stamp collecting
world, but has become increasingly popular with coin
collectors all over the world as well.
Prices for premium and scarce pieces, such as the
present piece, are still relatively low, and it appears
that this is a perfect time to secure the scarce pieces.
Certified by NGC, this coin appears to be grossly
undergraded to us, especially for a large and heavy
coin in the relatively soft gold metal. Virtually
untoned on the obverse, the reverse is a bit more
green-gold and is very appealing.
* Coins that are priced at smaller premiums
over bullion prices such as this coin are subject
to change in price ( up or down ) depending on the
spot price of gold. We simply do not have time to
effect price changes on each coin every day in the
type of market we are experiencing at present.
