Ex Stack’s (29 March 1973), lot 1016; H. C. McKown Auction (23 December 1936); Dr. J. A. Williams Collection, offered in The Numismatist, January 1931.

The Panama-Pacific International Exposition was held in San Francisco, California from 20 February to 4 December 1915 to commemorate ostensibly the completion and opening of the Panama Canal on 15 August 1914, also to celebrate the city’s rise from the ashes of the 1906 earthquake. A commemorative series was authorized by the United States Congress to be struck at the San Francisco Mint: a silver Half Dollar, a gold Dollar, a gold Quarter Eagle, an Octagonal Fifty Dollar Gold Piece, and a Round Fifty Dollar Gold Piece. The Half Dollar and the two Fifty Dollar Gold Pieces were the first commemorative coins struck bearing the motto “In God We Trust”. A complete five-coin set in copper frame or leather case originally cost $200 (approximately $5,200 today).

Important Note:
The coins and the original copper frame will be offered individually, after which the coins and the frame will be offered as a complete set with an opening bid of one bid over the aggregate hammer prices of the individual lots. If a bid is placed on the full set, the coins and frame will be sold as a complete set, and the bids on the individual lots will be canceled. If there are no bids for the complete set, the hammer prices on the individual lots will be honored.
