This set of Capped Bust and Classic Head $5 gold pieces is so rare in Proof that PCGS has certified only six specimens since 1986 (as this is being written). That’s not six examples of each date, but six coins total of the entire date run! If you locate even a single coin you’ll be assured of being among the top collectors of this awesomely tough series! Here is a set for the ultra-rich and the ultra-dedicated!

Notes: This set has bonuses. Please see the Set Composition for a listing.
