Extremely low mintage of only 6,749!!! Panama-Pacific International Exposition commemorative coins have such an attractive design they are always in demand. The Exposition itself was set up near the Marina in San Francisco, and the colonnade at the Exploratorium still exists today. The 1915-S Panama-Pacific, or 1915-S Pan-Pac as it is affectionately known, commemorates celebrating recent events such as the rebuilding of San Franciso after the 1906 earthquake, as well as the building and opening of the Panama Canal, which was completed in 1914. Both events symbolized a rebirth of sorts for many residents of San Francisco. This coin displays Columbia, holding a caduceus in her left hand to commemorate the Army Medical Corps' victory of the deadly malaria outbreak that took place during the time of the Panama Canal being built. Its reverse depicts an eagle striding atop a column. This coin is one of only two Quarter Eagle coins issued in the classic commemorative series and by far the more scarce and elusive. Even moreso in MS-64 or higher. The other $2.50 Quarter Eagle is the far more easily accessible 1926 Sesquicentennial.
Extremely low mintage of only 6,749!!! This particular coin has extremely nice luster and great eye appeal. There are no distracting or mentionable blemishes to note. This coin is sure to please and attractively priced to move. Graded by PCGS as XF-45.
