Owner's Comments

2001-W Gold Half Eagle PR70DCAM: Capitol Visitor Center { PCGS-3 } (Dec'2009) Mintage: 27,652 (proof) Just a perfect, simple, elegant and classically rendered gold coin. Sharp contrast over flawless surfaces makes this a very eye-catching piece, from the Corinthian column on the obverse to the 1800 Capitol Building on the back. The highly frosted devices make the architecture pop against the vast deeply reflective black mirrors.

Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez: The 2001-W $5 Capitol Visitor Center Proof Commemorative Coin was struck to fund a proposed Visitor Center at the U.S. Capitol. The Mint issued three different commemorative coins for this program, which included a Clad Half Dollar, Silver Dollar and finally the $5 Gold Commemoratives. All three coins were struck in Mint State and proof format.
