Origin/Country: United States

Specifications: Bronze, 40 Grains (95% copper, 5% zinc and tin), 17.5 mm.

Business strikes of the Half Centavos coin were struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 1903 and 1904. A limited number of Proof Half Centavos were produced at the Philadelphia mint from 1903 through 1908.

The obverse design shows a young Filipino male seated next to an anvil holding a hammer in his right hand, his left arm raised, and in the background to his left is a billowing volcano. The reverse design depicts an eagle with spread wings perched atop an American shield.

The Half Centavos coin was poorly accepted by the public and no further business strikes of this denomination were made after 1904. For lack of use over 7,500,000 Half Centavos were withdrawn from circulation. Most of these were sent back to the United States where they were melted and then re-coined into One Centavos pieces in 1908. That leaves a little less than 60% of the origional total mintage still available to collectors today.

The 1905 Half Centavo is a PROOF ONLY ISSUE with a mintage of 471 coins. The PCGS population for the 1905 Half Centavos in PF-64 RED is 2 coins with only 4 specimens graded higher. The combined NGC/PCGS certified population is 2/5. This specimen is a flashy golden red near-gem from the Louis E. Eliasberg Sr. Collection.

ERIC P. NEWMAN COLLECTION (ERIC P. NEWMAN NUMISMATIC EDUCATION SOCIETY)
The Eric P. Newman Collection was carefully assembled and curated over a period of 90 years by noted numismatic writer and researcher Eric P. Newman, who at 102 years old continues to be active in his scholarly pursuits. The Eric P. Newman collection is known for its incredible depth and quality. Many numismatists consider the Eric P. Newman Collection to be the last of the vaunted old-time coin collections, ranking in importance alongside such highly regarded names as Eliasberg, Pittman and Garrett.

Selections of World Coins from this phenomenal and historic collection were certified by NGC and offered by Heritage Auctions on January 14-16 2014. All of the specimens sold in that sale were from the extensive collection of the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society (a Missouri not-for-profit corporation) and have been assembled over a period of 90 years. Proceeds of the sale of all items were used exclusively for supplementing the Society's museum operations and scholarly numismatic research efforts and for the benefit of other not-for-profit institutions selected by the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society for public purposes. This specimen is one of only four U.S. Philippine coins with the Eric P. Newman (Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society) pedigree.

The Half Centavo was designed by Melicio Figueroa. The obverse design shows a young Filipino male seated next to an anvil holding a hammer in his right hand, his left arm raised, and in the background to his left is a billowing volcano. The reverse design depicts an eagle with spread wings perched atop an American shield.

Business strikes of the Half Centavo coin were struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 1903 (12,084,000) and 1904 (5,654,000). The Half Centavo coin was poorly accepted by the public and no further business strikes of this denomination were made after 1904. For lack of use over 7,500,000 Half Centavos were withdrawn from circulation. Most of these were sent back to the United States where they were melted and then re-coined into One Centavo pieces in 1908. That leaves a little less than 60% of the origional total mintage still available to collectors today.

A limited number of Proof Half Centavos were produced at the Philadelphia mint from 1903 through 1906 and again in 1908. The mintage figures for proof Half Centavos is as follows:1903 (2,558), 1904 (1,355), 1905 (471), 1906 (500), and 1908 (500). The 1905, 1906, and 1908 Half Centavos were PROOF ONLY ISSUES.

This lovely full red SUPERB GEM is pedigreed from the Dr. Greg Pineda Philippine Collection. Although the 1903 Proof Half Centavo had a mintage of 2,558 coins full red GEMs are EXTREMELY RARE. The combined PCGS/NGC population of 1903 Proof Half Centavos in PF67 RD is only 10 specimens with 1 graded higher.

This fabulous toned GEM is from the Dr. Greg Pineda Philippine Collection. The obverse has red toned central features and a rainbow of iridescent gold, red, purple, peacock blue, and green in the fields. The reverse is red, green, blue and purple toned. It is gorgeous and the pictures do not do it justice. Although this coin is technically graded as RB there is actually no brown on either the obverse or reverse, only red and gorgeous multi-color toning.

Specifications: Bronze (95% copper, 5% zinc and tin), 80 Grains (4.7000 grams), 24mm.

The obverse design of the 1903 through 1936 Centavo shows a young Filipino male seated next to an anvil holding a hammer in his right hand, his left arm raised, and in the background to his left is a billowing volcano. The reverse design depicts an eagle with spread wings perched atop an American shield. Business strikes using this design were made at the Philadelphia Mint from 1903 through 1905, the San Francisco Mint from 1908 through 1920 and the Manila Mint from 1920 through 1936. The Manila mint was the only United States branch mint ever established outside the continental United States. Proof issues were made at the Philadelphia Mint from 1903 through 1906 and again in 1908.

This rare PR66 RD beauty was purchased at the Dr. Greg Pineda Philippine Collection Auction. The auction catelog describes this specimen as "a fabulous coin, just a wonderful beauty". GEM PROOF One Centavos in Full Red are EXTREMELY RARE. The combined NGC/PCGS population for this coin in PF66 RED is eight coins with only six specimens graded higher.

Copper-Nickel, 77.16 Grains, 20.5 mm.

The 1903 through 1928 Five Centavos have the same obverse and reverse design as the Half Centavo and One Centavo coins. Business strikes were made at the Philadelphia Mint in 1903 and 1904, the San Francisco Mint from 1916 through 1919, and the Manila Mint from 1920 through 1928. A limited number of proof Five Centavos coins were made at the Philadelphia Mint from 1903 through 1908.

The 1905 Five Centavos is a PROOF ONLY ISSUE with a mintage of only 471. Of the 471 pieces made, this has to be one of the very best. It is beautiful! This specimen is pedigreed from the Dr, Greg Pineda Philippine Collection.

This beautiful specimen from the Dr. Greg Pineda Collection is evenly and beautifully blue toned on the obverse, and has more brilliant but lovely shades of golden toning on the reverse. An exquisite offering of a rare coin.

The obverse design by Melicio Figueroa features a young Filipino woman standing to the right in a flowing dress while striking an anvil with a hammer held in her right hand, the left hand is raised and holding an olive branch. In the background is a billowing volcano. The reverse design, also by Melicio Figueroa, depicts an eagle with spread wings perched atop an American shield. At a weight of 2.69 Grams of .900 Silver the Large (17.5 mm) Ten Centavos, minted from 1903 through 1906 had a silver content equal to the U.S. Barber Dime. With an official exchange rate of two Philippine Pesos to one U.S. dollar it was not long before the value of the silver content in the Large Ten Centavos exceeded its face value and many were melted during the great silver melts of the period. Lyman Allen estimates that less than 20% of all 1903-1906 silver coinages exist today in any grade.

Business strikes of the Large Ten Centavos were coined at the Philadelphia Mint in 1903 and 1904 and the San Francisco Mint in 1903 and 1904. Proofs of the Large Ten Centavos were made in very limited quantities at the Philadelphia Mint from 1903 through 1906.

Proof sets were not sold in any sort of protective packaging or cases but were contained in plain paper envelopes and each coin was wrapped individually in thin tissue paper. This method of packaging has contributed to the micro thin hairline scratches seen on most proof coins as well as the heavy toning often seen. GEM proof coins are very scarce.

The 1906 Ten Centavos is a PROOF ONLY ISSUE with a mintage of only 500 coins. The combined NGC/PCGS Population is 17/14 (NGC Population 5/4, PCGS Population 12/10)

Item Description: BRONZE SC$1 1920 HK-450 WILSON DOLLAR MANILA MINT OPENING EX. DR. GREGORY PINEDA
Grade: NGC UNC DETAILS
Research: View Coin
Owner Comments
So-Called Dollar, 1920 (M) HK-450 Wilson Dollar. Bronze 38.2mm, medal commemorating the "Opening of the Manila Mint".

The Bronze medal commemorating the "Opening of the Manila Mint" was struck at the U.S. Manila Mint in mid-July 1920. Speaker Osmena of the Filipino House of Representatives struck off the first medal during the July 15, 1920 opening day ceremony and 2000 specimens were struck on the first day. Up to 3700 Bronze Medals were produced and sold for fifty cents at the time of issue.

Many of the Bronze medals went unsold for years and were still in the Philippine Treasury at the outbreak of WWII. When Japan invaded the Philippines the Commonwealth government moved the contents of the Philippine Treasury from Manila to the island fortress of Corregidor. Prior to the fall of Corregidor 16 million Pesos in silver coins and many Silver and Bronze Wilson Dollars were dumped into Manila Bay to prevent there seizure by the Japanese. Although many of these coins and medals were salvaged after the war the majority are heavily corroded from their long immersion in salt water.

Bronze Wilson Dollars in a high state of preservation are much scarcer than the Silver medals. NGC and PCGS combined have only certified 22 Bronze Wilson dollars in MS60 and above. Unfortunately population reports for details graded coins are not available.

This attractive specimen from the Dr. Gregory Pineda Philippine Collection is 90% red with a touch of iridescent blue toning.
