Indian Princess Head Three Dollar Gold Coins were made from 1854 to 1889. Most Three Dollar Gold Coins were made in Philadelphia.
The branch mints in Dahlonega, New Orleans, and San Francisco struck Three Dollar Gold Coins although coins from these mints are scarce!
Well detailed with nice bright surfaces and none of the planchet or striking quality problems that plague this issue.
Outstanding for the grade and issue with strong detail and surfaces that are much more attractive than typically seen. The only 'O' mint 'Three' with a mintage of just 24,000.
Very nearly mint state with flashy lustrous surfaces and a sharp strike.
Scarce in any grade as just 14,000 were minted and the issue saw heavy West Coast circulation. Just 2 have been graded mint state at PCGS. This is a pleasing example with solid detail and problem-free surfaces.
Very nearly mint state with flashy mint luster and a sharp strike.
CAC. Super flashy orange-gold luster with beautiful surfaces and a sharp strike. Just 15,558 minted.
Strong detail with pleasing surfaces which retain a trace of mint luster. The final 'S' mint three dollar gold piece date except for the unique 1870-S. Just 7,000 were minted and they must have seen heavy circulation as the survival rate seems low with just 3 coins grading mint state at PCGS.
Just 4,000 minted and an issue that apparently saw heavy circulation as there are probably less than 50 examples known in mint state. This particular coin is very pleasing with flashy orange-gold luster and a solid strike.
A nice bold strike with flashy orange-gold luster over semi proof-like surfaces. Quite scarce with a mintage of just 2,600 and seldom-seen in mint state.
Radiant frosty yellow-gold luster and a solid strike. A scarce date with a mintage of just 4,850 coins.
4,840 minted and a date that saw widespread circulation, making mint state examples scarce. This piece is well struck and problem-free with flashy orange-gold luster.
Well struck with rich lustrous surfaces. Just the barest touch of 'rub' (hard to detect) keeps this rarity out of a mint state holder. Just 2,500 minted and, to our surprise, this is the first one we've handled in any grade since 2008.
CAC. Super flashy with frosted devices and reflective surfaces. Outstanding for the grade and the only 62 CAC has approved. Only 12 coins have graded higher at PCGS. A very tough date with a mere 3,500 coins minted.

Well detailed with pleasing original lustrous surfaces.
Well struck with semi proof-like surfaces and flashy yellow-gold luster.
