Obverse of this incuse type matches best the size U.S.A. Indian Head $2.50 gold piece. The workmanship is not so exacting as the design by Bela Lyaon Pratt. The reverse is a medallic rotation and the eagle & shield type, seen on the Seated Liberty dollar, is retained. Reeded edge, encapsulated. Mintage is only 500.
I bought another that was listed by a highly reputable dealer as Proof. When received it looked just like this one. So this one may be incorrectly labeled by NGC , although it matches KM, or these are actually matte proof.
This 22 kt. gold coin (1/10 oz. net weight pure gold) was produced by Australia's official Perth Mint for the Republic of Liberia on the same blank used to mint the American Gold Eagle. Extremely rare -- only 500 made. As a result of President Theodore Roosevelt's opinion that United States coins were "atrociously hideous," new gold coin designs appeared in the early 1900s. Bela Lyon Pratt, who was selected to redesign the $2 1/2 and $5 gold coins, utilized an unusual sculpting technique, similar to that employed thousands of years earlier by Egyptian artists. His "incused" design lies entirely below the coin's surface, in contrast with normal "relief" where the design is higher than the fields. Pratt's native American chieftain design is emblematic of Liberty.
