The Double Split Gold Piedfort Story*

By Bernard von NotHaus – Monetary Architect

The problem with minting a one ounce .9999 fine Gold Proof is that as gold is denser than silver or copper, the diameter of the most expensive specimen in a three coin Gold Set is always smaller in diameter to provide enough thickness for the gold to be struck.

My solution to this age old minting dilemma was to invent a unique gold 39mm piedfort collectible. The 2016 Trump Dollar Gold Piedfort is a unique coin invention with three planches: two half ounce 9999 fine gold planchets and a one ounce fine silver planchet layered with 24K gold. The three planchets are stacked on top of the reverse die: a half ounce gold planchet on the bottom, the 24K gold layered one ounce silver planchet in the center and a half ounce gold planchet on top.  

All three planchets are synchronously struck six times with the Ultra High Relief (UHR) obverse die and voila – the three planchets are bonded and a stunning Gold Proof Double Split Piedfort is created with a flawless mirror-like Proof finish that cannot be confused with the lower relief, Brilliant Uncirculated Edition. This beauty is completed with an individual Serial Number engraved on the edge of the double split gold piedfort.

* Piedforts are an old European tradition, dating from the late 13th century in Bohemia. According to recent "encyclopedic dictionaries" by Richard Doty and R. Scott Carlson, other early minters of these special productions included France, Germany and England.

A Piedfort, French for "strong foot," is a special minted coin or medal on an unusually thick planchet, usually twice the thickness of the normal issue. Different reasons for piedforts have been advanced with the most accepted reason being to show examples of an engraver's work or to provide added thickness for striking ultra high relief coins.

France started producing modern day piedforts of its circulating coins in 1967 and continued such offerings regularly through the 1970s. In the 1980s, Carlson notes, there was an upsurge in popularity of piedforts among collectors. France offered piedforts of the silver 100-franc commemorative for the 100th anniversary of the Statue of Liberty.

In addition to piedforts being double thick, “split piedforts” have been minted with two planchets and on special occasions piedforts have been minted in precious metals rather than the base metal of circulating coinage. In addition to European countries, US Mint has shown no reluctance to mint its own piedforts with variously packaged sets, reverse proof coins and other exotic numismatic issues to the cheers of many collectors.
