1878 Three Dollar Gold Piece NGC MS67

None Higher at NGC

Within the three-dollar gold series, the 1878 is the most popular type coin candidate. Its mintage of 82,304 pieces is among the highest in the series, contributing to the issue’s availability. However, it is also one of the most attractive issues in the series as a rule. A high-grade 1878 three-dollar piece can be one of the most attractive U.S. gold coins known. Luster frequently shimmers like it does on no other issue, and ranges of color can be found. This one is gorgeous in both regards. The NGC population is 11 with none higher.

1854-O Three Dollar Gold Piece NGC MS61

Very Rare Unc. O-mint

While 1854-D is a great rarity, more than a thousand 1854-O examples remain from the mintage of 24,000 pieces, typically in XF to AU grades. Mint State representatives are surprisingly rare, given the tendency of the public to set aside new designs and denominations during the introductory year of issue. In hand, this one is more of a yellow-gold than orange-gold color and much more lustrous than seen in our images. The NGC population is just 10 with 7 higher.

1882 Three Dollar Gold Piece NGC MS65+ DPL

DMPL Gem $3

The 1882 three dollar gold piece claims a business-strike mintage of 1,500 pieces, certainly a small total in absolute terms, but not out-of-the-ordinary in the context of the series. The 1882 has a relatively high survival rate, probably because contemporary collectors realized the low production total would make the coins more desirable in the future and saved high-quality pieces. The issue is still very rare at the MS65 level, however. This coin is quite dramatic in appearance, with fully, deeply mirrored surfaces on each side, accompanied by heavily frosted devicesThis is one of only two examples of this date to have received the highly coveted DPL designation from NGC. The other was graded a lowly MS62DPL.

1863 Three Dollar Gold Piece PCGS MS62

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.

1866 Three Dollar Gold Piece PCGS MS64

Rare, Flashy Near-Gem

Struck shortly after the close of the Civil War, the 1866 three dollar gold piece was not saved in any meaningful quantity by collectors, and thus its low 4,000-coin mintage had more of an effect on high-grade availability than can be said of the mintages of later issues in the series. Mint State survivors are scarce across the board, but are notably rare above the MS62 level. The example offered here is highly lustrous and flashy, with a lovely overall appearance. The PCGS population is only 7 with 5 higher and if you were even able to locate an MS65 example, it would likely be more than double the price of this coin.  Listed at $16,300 in the CDN CPG, $13,000 in the PCGS price guide and $17,500 in Trends.
