This piece is particulary interesting and significant because is was struck by the U.S. Mint post 1933 gold ban; this 1943 date ONLY. Listed as Bullion Value in KM VF & below you will find it hard not to pay a high premium on this coin with a U.S. mintage report of 89,108. This coin will be mentioned in my article on the Saudi/ARAMCO gold discs. Similar coins were struck in the Pahlavi denomination (mintage: 16,053). This coin is a borrowed photo and not in the Museum.
The Philadelphia mint coined gold pahlevis (16,053) and half-pahlevis (89,108) for Iran in 1943, as shown by The Report of the Director of the Mint for 1943. This report referred to this coin in a footnote and
stated: "These coins are objects of value, rather than a circulating medium."
