1915-S Pan-Pac $2.5 Gold Commemorative NGC/PCGS MS67+ - Coins
The $2.50 Panama-Pacific Quarter Eagle, designed by Charles E. Barber and George T. Morgan, was specially struck for the Panama-Pacific Exposition in 1915. Held in San Francisco, California to celebrate the opening of the Panama Canal, the Panama-Pacific Exposition saw the release of five different gold commemorative issues. As the first quarter eagle commemorative, the $2.50 Panama-Pacific issue forever holds a place in numismatic history. Only 10,000 were struck but just 6,479 examples sold during the exposition, leaving the others to be melted down. With such a low mintage and only 6 examples graded in Mint State 67+ condition, this coin is not only an Absolute and Condition Rarity, but also one of the finest known examples of the issue.
