Why buy this First Flight 2003-W $10 Gold commemorative?

This 2003-W Gold First Flight was issued to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Orville and Wilber Wright’s first successful flight, which took place on Dec. 17, 1903. The coin is .900 fine gold, weighs 16.7180g, and bears the West Point Mint’s “W” Mint mark. Only 21,676 of these coins were minted.

Who designed the $10 Gold First Flight and what does it represent?

The obverse of this Gold $10 First Flight was designed by Donna Weaver, while Norman Nemeth designed the reverse. Weaver’s design features the Wright brothers. The two are shown in suits and looking toward the holder. On the reverse, an eagle soars over the Wright Flyer. The image of the plane was created from a famous photo of the event.

What does Proof 69 Ultra Cameo from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation mean?

When the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) grades a piece Proof 69, it means that the coin has a few minor flaws that are only noticeable when the piece is viewed under magnification. The Ultra Cameo portion of the grade is indicative of strong contrasts between heavily frosted device and deeply mirrored fields on both of the coin’s faces.
