2002-W $5 Gold Proof

Gold is good and shiny. Now proof gold is very shiny and can be bought directly from the U.S. Mint unlike the regular gold bullion coins that can only be bought by third party sellers.

My images will never do justice on how gold shines in proof condition. This is 91.67% fine gold and yes Canada makes them with a higher purity but there designs are lacking. This is a work of art for bullion coin. If you were to display one coin it should be this one since it will resist tarnishing, toning, and hazing. Be aware it is a metal coin with silver and copper in it so the climate might change it over the years but overall it is pretty stable.

The box and case are also good looking. Velvet and shiny parts all over keep my collecting brain all happy.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 5 Dollar / United States
Year: 2002 W
Mintage: 40,864
Metal: 91.67% Gold, 5.33% Copper, 3.00% Silver
Value: $200.00 in Uncirculated

Do you have a gold coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment / question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.
