2000-P Sacagawea Dollar Struck on a SBA Dollar Planchet

Coin World featured this 2000-P Sacagawea Dollar struck on a SBA Dollar planchet on the front page of the May 22, 2000 issue. Mike Byers of Byers Numismatic Corp. bought this "discovery piece" which was submitted to PCGS and certified MS 67.

This is a 2000-P Sacagawea Dollar struck on a left over clad Dollar planchet intended for the striking of 1999 Susan B. Anthony Dollars. There are now five reported pieces and this rarity would be the center piece of any Major Mint Error Collection. Some day this Transitional will be as famous as the 1943 Copper Cents and the 1944 Steel Cents. Click here for more information on the discovery piece.
