By Bernard von NotHaus Monetary Architect. The problem with minting a 39mm one ounce. 9999 fine gold proof is that as gold is denser than silver or copper, the most expensive specimen in a three coin gold set, is always smaller. That problem has always been an eyesore for me. I always wanted all three specimens to be the same size and have the same quality. Technically, the problem is that a one ounce gold planchet is so thin it limits the relief of the gold die to being very shallow and eliminates using an Ultra High Relief (UHR) die completely. So while the UHR die works for the silver and copper, it does not work for the gold proof. The solution to this mint dilemma was to invent a new mintable item. Based on my two previous piedforts: the 39mm two ounce silver Liberty Dollar Piedfort in 2004 and the two piece quarter ounce Liberty Dollar Split Piedfort in 2006, I invented the 2016 gold proof Double Split Piedfort for the Trump Dollar gold proof set. The gold proof Double Split Piedfort is a unique coin structure with three planches: half ounce. 9999 fine gold planchet on the bottom, gold clad one ounce. 999 silver planchet in the center and a half ounce. 9999 fine gold planchet on top. All three planchets are minted at the same time with an UHR obverse die and voila a stunningly gold proof Double Split Piedfort is created so the gold proof set has three proofs in gold, silver and copper that are all the same size and all struck with the same UHR obverse die. The 2016 Trump Dollar gold proof Double Split Piedfort set consists of one ounce of. 9999 fine gold, two ounces of. 999 fine silver and one AV ounce of pure copper. It was engineered to be the best, most innovative and most unique, commemorative coin set for an equally innovative and unique Presidential Candidate Donald J. 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.
