2006 San Francisco Mint Commemorative $5 Gold Proof
Issued in 2006 on the 100th anniversary of the San Francisco Earthquake, this $5 Gold Proof from the U.S. Mint honors the San Francisco Old Mint or the “Granite Lady”. This building was the only financial institution to survive the Earthquake of 1906.
Since it was able to get the relief funds to the people, the building was instrumental in getting San Fransisco rebuilt.
Unlike the Gold Eagle series, Gold Commemoratives are minted using the old US measures for gold content in coins. For example the $5 Gold Eagle contains 1/10 Troy oz of gold in a 22 karat alloy (0.9167 fineness). This coin contains 0.2419 troy oz of gold in a 0.900 fineness.
Coin is in original mint packaging with certificate of authenticity and presentation box.
