As of this sales listing PCGS has certified 20,520 of these dollars in Proof 69 while a minuscule 81 have been certified higher at the perfect 70 level. Due to the large size of this coin, it was hard for the mint to make a perfect coin. Due to the rarity of the 70 graded coin, the book value is over two thousand dollars. It looks like as more collectors begin to collect certified coins, the prices between the 69 and 70 coins will need to equalize somewhat.

This large dollar coin is also silver in color, but modern proofs with their shiny glossy surfaces, even though among the most beautiful of the coins, reflect all the light and make the coins look black when photographed. Rest assured the coin you purchase will look great, it has to since it is in a PCGS 69 holder.
