This Indian eagle offers elegant quality and incredible mint luster that swirls over the surfaces in varying swaths of orange-gold and yellow-gold. This is the finest example certified by PCGS, and is alone in that category. The strike is sharp and the surfaces are as close to perfection as one could hope to find. An extraordinary condition rarity at this lofty level, and a highlight that commands attention.<br />
The mintage of 33,500 pieces offers enough lower grade coins to go around, but at the Gem or finer level this is quite a rare issue. Of course, the offered coin is the finest certified by PCGS of this date and with its gorgeous luster and cartwheel effect, it would be a difficult challenge to find another piece even approaching this quality and visual impact.
