NGC US Coin Census for Gold Dollars (1849-1889)

Owner Comments:

Born out of the California Gold Rush in 1849, the gold dollar passed from the coinage scene in 1889 rather ignominiously, with a mintage of only 28,950 business strikes. Many examples were apparently saved, as today the 1889 is the most common gold dollar from the 1880s. MS68 coins, however, remain conditionally rare. This gorgeous example displays rich orange-gold coloration over pristine, satiny surfaces. The strike is razor-sharp throughout, and the overall appearance is one of numismatic perfection.
