123500 CONCEPT $1 2000 LIBERTY HEAD $45.00
2000 GALLERY MINT TOKEN - LIBERTY HEAD - ICG CERTIFIED. REVERSE FINALIST FOR U.S. $1 DESIGN. MINTAGE: 2,500. Privately Minted Pattern for the new dollar coin produced in 1998 to provide the Washington decision makers an example of what the new golden dollar could look like. Ron Landis, Gallery Mint engraver, first designed the Flowing Hair type and mated it with a reverse to symbolize peace in the new millennuium. Rep. Micheal Castle, then chairman of the International Monetary Policy Committee, decided that the more familiar Statue of Liberty would be more recognizable. He found this statue design in the Mint archive designed earlier by James Ferrell, a Mint engraver. To help promote this design, Gallery Mint made this second type of pattern that was distributed to members of the House and Senate. This design was actually written into the original bill. The bill passed with the exception that the design be left to the Secretary of Treasury. Robert Rubin formed a selection commitee and the rest is history. DOUBLE THICK PIEDFORTS (NOT GOLD) with ititial price being $25. Due to Ron's participation in the design competition, the Gallery Mint was not able to promote these designs in any way, so as not to influence the selection process. After the selection of the Sacagawea Dollar, the remaining 250 of each style were offered as a last chance to purchase this historic pattern by the Gallery Mint. The reverse design was one of four designs that made it to the final round and was very close to being accepted. The design selected was the work of Thomas Rogers, an outstanding Mint engraver, and friend of Gallery Mint.
