  1. Gold Libertad 2017 mintages?

    I bought the 1/10 oz BU thinking it might make the key, and given this info who knows... luckily my coin got graded 70 by NGC so I'll probably keep it, quite hard to find the 1/10 currently

    Yes no distinction. They are certainly different in appearance. It's up to buyers and sellers to understand that difference now. Maybe they should create a special label called "The BU that was promised" [emoji3]

    Thanks Trueview is usually a hit or miss on the proof coins. Just too shiny and easy to throw the cameras off. I saw someone actually had Trueview with holders, how is that possible? Here in US I don't really see that option, all coins have to be taken out of holder for photography?

    I think it's a slight shift from the pure technical definition to a more practical one. On close glances the surface is not different from a proof coin we are used to seeing. For those modern coins graded as PL, for example the Mexican silver libertads and 2009 ultra high relief American liberty and 2015 high relief American liberty, they still have hints of a MS surface but if you put you finger above you can see the reflection clearly, hence graded as PL. NGC is also more comfortable with PL grade. Giving SP designation is also tricky, on modern coins they are mostly reserved for burnished strikes or special finishes. Royal mint hadn't made any special treatment on these sovereigns.

    FYI just got the coin back from PCGS, it's graded as PR70 DC (under PCGS 617455 for first strike), probably the only 5 Sov Piece in the PCGS population now. I wrote a detailed explanation on the fact that Royal Mint regard this as BU but PSGS decided to call it Proof. You can see the Trueview image for my coin here: https://www.pcgs.com/pop/valueview.aspx?s=617455 I have the proof version as well and I also think the BU looked better on reverse
