1851-1853 Liberty Head Gold Dollar (Type 1), Certified

Today, ìdollarî probably makes you think of the dollar bill, the golden Sacagawea dollars, or even the Presidential series. But before 1935, it meant silver dollars ñ and even that took second place to the precious 90% fine gold dollars issued in the 1800s! Americaís original gold dollars ñ the short-lived Liberty Head of 1849-54, and Indian Head of 1854-56 ñ are in great demand by collectors, and very hard to find. But they wonít be for you... if you act now!

The great discovery of gold at Sutterís Mill in California lured millions across the continental divide, and created a new U.S. gold coin ñ the gold dollar! Introduced in 1849, the first design (Type I) pictured the head of Liberty wearing a coronet. After a run of only 6 years, this very first design was replaced. The new coin (Type II) was larger in diameter, and featured the head of Liberty in an Indian headdress ñ earning its ìIndian Princessî nickname. But due to problems striking this coin, the small head motif was modified in 1856, bringing the low-mintage Type II design to an end after just 3 short years.

These first gold $1 designs are hard to find in quantity ñ in fact, this is the first time weíve ever had enough Type II issues to feature in our catalog! Thatís because over 75% of all gold dollars have been melted down, and itís estimated that only about 1% survive in collectible condition. Each piece offered here was issued by the Philadelphia Mint, and has been graded by our experts and certified by either PCGS or NGC. Donít miss this opportunity to get these ìultimateî collector dollars now, while supplies last!
