Addition of the Sacagawea Dollar certainly helps support the 2000 US Mint proof set value. Now containing an impressive ten coins in all. The dollar's size 26.5mm, larger than the state quarters and providing space for the impressive portrait of Sacagawea.
A golden color to the coin is the result of an outer layer of manganese brass. Inner metal of pure copper is bonded to a top and bottom alloy of 77% copper, 12% zinc, 7% manganese and 4% nickel. Reference by the mint to the coin as the "Golden Dollar" refers to the color only, no gold is within the alloy. Interestingly the edge of the coin is smooth similar to the nickels and cents.
Manganese brass does tone overtime when exposed to the elements. The delicate and ultra-smoothness of the proof Sacagawea dollar is protected by the original case. A coin still bright and lively without any haze to the surface is a coin remaining in Gem Proof condition.
