Striking Liberty Design by Charles E. Barber

Charles E. Barber designed both faces of this coin. Obverse: The obverse bears a left-side portrait of Liberty. She has her hair held back in a bun and wears a tiara that bears an inscription of her name. Her likeness is encircled by thirteen stars, which symbolize the original states, and the date, "1899."

Reverse: At the center of the reverse is the Roman numeral "V," which combines with the inscription "CENTS" at the bottom of this face to offer the coin's face value. The "V" is partially encircled by a wreath, above which is the inscription "E PLURIBUS UNUM." "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" is inscribed along the rim.

Well Preserved PF65

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded this piece Proof 65. That grade means that it has an above average strike and shows no traces of wear.
