Thoughts On This Sacagawea Dollar

Could this be a special strike Dollar? Seen there was a post on these with only 75,000 minted. Only in 2000D. The coin is very glossy.

    just to be clear, you are asking about the raw one right? that it may be one of the millennium coins? i PRESUME the only way to get that designation is to have submitted them in the proper packaging? there is probably a coin number for JUST PL and then another for the M-set PL?

    i saw them in the pops recently and noted there were a lot of them graded compared to their non-pl counterparts. fwiw

    so i suppose the means there are probably a few floaters out there.

    The coin in the NGC 69pl holder is a very high grade, excellent example of the millennium set sac $1. The raw coin in the pictures is gold plated and is in essence worth only $1. Do not send that raw coin in for grading.

    I strongly suspect that you are correct.

    This is the set that it came from. Both the Sac and the ASE (W) were described as burnished.

    This has been discussed before.

    Not exactly sure if this is answering your question but many of the business stuck denomination coins coming out of Denver have a "distinctive" high gloss, almost proof like finish compared to the Philly business strikes. I don't know why, something to do with the minting process or quality control.

    The quality coming out of Denver seems to be head and shoulder above Philly. If you notice, most if the problem coins, die chip, cracks, grease filled, etc... Seems to happen at Philly, not Denver.

    Most likely Plated I assume. Thanks for all the feedbacks everyone.
