2015 Pan-Pac Octagonal Silver Proof – Exclusive to MCM!

2015 Niue - Panama Pacific International Exposition Centennial

2015 Niue – Panama Pacific International Exposition Centennial

It has been 100 years since the Panama Canal was opened – followed by a nine-month long exposition celebrating this achievement that was held in San Francisco. As a part of the numerous souvenirs that could be purchased at the exhibition, the United States Mint made a set of silver and gold commemorative coins. There was a half dollar, one dollar gold, two and a half dollar gold, and two different fifty dollar gold coins. The general subject of each of the fifty dollar gold coins was the same, but they came in two shapes. A typical, round coin was made, but what captured the attention of collectors was the octagonal shaped gold $50 coin.

The beauty and intrigue of the octagonal shaped “Pan-Pac” gold coin has held the attention of the public for generations. Widely considered to be one of the more beautiful gold issues ever created for the United States Mint, the $50 Pan-Pac gold is a very wide departure from most other coins created by the US Mint.

These two-ounce 2015 Pan-Pac Octagonal Silver Proof coins are high-quality proof strikes that re-utilize many of the original elements of the 1915 round and octagonal $50 gold coins to recreate and give new birth to the beauty of these historic coins. The selective gilt parts of the coin represent the round coin, and the additional silver elements of the design give shape in tribute to the octagonal design.

There were only 1,915 of these extra-thick gilt proof two-ounce silver coins made! Get yours now with free shipping from ModernCoinMart!
