Quite a few scarce and rare dates challenge collectors in the One Dollar Gold Coin series.
No L. This was the first die pair used for this first year Gold Dollar. Breen and Akers both list the mintage as a mere 1,000 coins although most of the survivors are in fairly high grade. This is a wonderful coin for the grade with fiery orange-gold luster and a great strike.
Open Wreath. Extremely flashy deep gold luster and a needle-sharp strike.
Well detailed with a remnant of luster. Typical crude planchet and striking from this tiny mint. Just 21,588 minted.
Very nearly mint state with a sharp strike and nice lustrous surfaces. A scarce date with a mintage of just 21,588 and the first Dahlonega Mint gold dollar.
A scarce gold dollar from the tiny Charlotte Mint with a mintage of just 6,956 pieces. This example has bold detail with nice original lustrous surfaces.
