|Only 2,558 proof U.S.-Philippines one centavos were struck by the Philadelphia Mint in 1903. This example of the 1903 U.S.-Philippines Proof One Centavo is graded PR66RB by PCGS and is encapsulated in a newer-style edge-view holder. A TrueView photo was taken by PCGS which captures the beauty of this coin in the best light. Higher resolution copies of the image are available on the PCGS website. This coin is one of only thirteen (13) examples grading PR66RB at PCGS with only a single red-brown example grading higher, a lone PR66+RB. The coin has beautiful colorful toning on both sides as shown in the TrueView photo. The obverse has a full rainbow of colors. The reverse also has a rainbow of color present, but bright vibrant green color dominates. In addition, the coin has very strong proof mirrored fields which really make the colorful toning pop, even more so that shown in the photos. There are no significant hits, marks or spotting of note that would preclude a higher grade. This coin has more eye appeal than just about every proof U.S.-Philippines coin I have ever had.
Because of the difficulty in capturing the overall look of the coin in a single image, I have also included a short high-definition video of the coin towards the bottom of this listing in an attempt to give you a better idea of what this coin will look like in hand. Please note that you may need to adjust the video quality to 1080p and may need to increase the size of the video to full screen in order to see the coin in maximum detail.
