Tough Uncirculated. $3 Civil War Issue
The financial stresses and uncertainties of the Civil War caused widespread hoarding of all precious metal coinage during the war years. The U.S. government suspended specie payments in 1861, so gold coins did not circulate at par and there was limited demand for the three dollar gold piece in the national economy. Accordingly, only 5,000 three dollar gold pieces were struck in 1863, all delivered in one batch on November 21. Relatively few examples were saved and as might be expected, the 1863 three dollar gold piece is an elusive issue in all grades today. The PCGS population stands at 16 with 26 higher.
