David Akers (1975/88): Proofs of 1891 are very rare but not as rare as the proofs of 1889 and 1890. I estimate that approximately 20-25 exist, a comparatively high survival rate since only 52 were minted. Why such a large percentage has survived I am not sure but it is definitely the case that there are more 1891 proofs than there are proofs of some other dates with much higher proof mintages.
