1854 T-1 Gold Dollar NGC MS67

Tied for Highest Graded

The mintage for the 1854 gold dollar was not as large as the preceding three P-mint gold dollar deliveries; however, it was still a respectable 855,502 pieces. It’s not surprising, therefore, that this issue remains popular among type collectors who desire an attractive representative of James Longacre’s Type One design. While the average collector would happily settle for an MS64 or MS65 example, gold specialists who pride themselves on unrivaled numismatic beauty should go for this beauty. The NGC population is just 10 with none higher.

1922 Grant Star Gold Dollar NGC MS68

Stupendous

Among the many distinctions of artist Laura Gardin Fraser is that she was the only woman to design a classic gold commemorative, the Grant gold dollar. (In the modern era, Chief Engraver Elizabeth Jones designed the Statue of Liberty five dollar.) The two Grant gold dollar sub-types are of roughly equal rarity overall. This particular example dazzles with brilliant luster, wonderful eye appeal and virtually impeccable surfaces. The NGC population of just 10 with 2 higher.

1852 Gold Dollar PCGS MS68

One of the Very Finest

The 1852 is among the common dates in the Type One gold dollar set, popular with type collectors. However, Type One gold dollars are universally rare in Superb Gem condition, even the common dates. The 1852 is actually rarer in MS67 and higher grades than a few of the other Philadelphia issues. In MS68, though this issue’s rarity expands to represent the rarity of the entire Type One series. This little beauty features a very sharp strike, satiny luster and a pristine appearance. The PCGS population is only 4 with 1 higher.

1855 Gold Dollar PCGS MS66

Gem and Then Some

The gold dollar was introduced in 1849, authorized by the same legislation that created the double eagle in the wake of gold discoveries in California. Gold dollars weighed just 1.672 gm and had a diameter of 13 mm, making them even smaller than the three cent silver pieces that would be issued a couple of years later. In 1854, the Mint increased the diameter to 15 mm by thinning the planchet. James B. Longacre redesigned coin to mark the change and adapt the motifs for a thinner planchet. The Type Two design replaced the standard Liberty Head obverse with an Indian Princess bust, and the wreath on the reverse was exchanged for the one designed for the new three dollar gold pieces. However, the new design did not strike up fully on such a thin planchet, and in 1856, the obverse Liberty portrait was replaced with a lower-relief alternative that was similar to the design of the three dollar gold piece.

Tied for Highest Graded – Grant Gold Dollar NGC MS68

The Grant gold dollars and silver half dollars were issued on behalf of the Ulysses S. Grant Centenary Memorial Association, and that entity selected Laura Gardin Fraser to prepare the designs. A notice appeared in the January 24, 1922 issue of The Cincinnati Enquirer: There will be minted 10,000 $1 gold pieces and 250,000 silver half dollars, the first to sell for $2.50 each and the second for $1 each. This fund will assure the tri-fold purposes of the association which is interested in the construction of a memorial highway from this city to the east along the Ohio River. After the minting the dies will be destroyed, thus giving the coins a high numismatic value.” NGC has graded just 9 pieces at this level, 2 of which are designated as NGC Star examples. Listed at $19,400 in the CDN CPG and $32,500 in the NGC price guide.
