Great Collections description -
Mint Error (2000)-P Sacagawea Dollar Mule with Washington Quarter PCGS MS-66
About two dozen examples are known, since it was first discovered by Frank Wallis of Arkansas in the year of issue, 2000. It was the first "mule" released into circulation by the U.S. Mint - a "mule" is defined as a coin minted with obverse and reverse dies not normally seen on the same piece. It has been graded PCGS MS-66, which is tied for the finest graded by PCGS. Of the small number known, there are three different dies, this coin is Die 1, with the main die characteristic present on the F of OF (Sacagawea) to the edge of coin.
For one of the most famous errors to ever leave the U.S. Mint, only a few are available for collectors to own, as all others have been purchased over the years by a single collector. It's a striking error and understandable why it's been atop modern error lists for over twenty years since it was first discovered.
The 100 Greatest U.S. Mint Errors book by David Camire, Nicholas Brown and Fred Weinberg featured the Sacagawea Mule on the cover as well as ranked the mule as the #1 U.S. coin error.
