What is a 1879-P Four Dollar $4 Stella Coin?

The 1879-P Proof Four Dollar $4 Stella Coin is a gold coin that was produced at the Philadelphia mint. It has a legal tender value of $4.00. As a "Proof" coin, it was manufactured in a limited quantity, which makes it likely less available than "business strike" or "mint strike" coins which are intended for use in daily transactions. With such a low mintage of only 15, there are likely few of these items available for purchase or at auction in a year. This coin was minted in the first year of its series, and is a more popular coin to collectors for that reason, but not necessarily to investors. This coin contains a moderate amount of gold at 6.01785 grams (0.19 oz. Adjusted Gold Weight).
