Description & Analysis

The Philadelphia Mint produced just 1,600 business strike and 36 proof Gold Dollars in 1880. This is an understandably popular date, but, since this issue did not see widespread circulation, the 1880 is actually one of the more common Type Three Gold Dollars at the Gem level of preservation. Coins that grade as fine as MS67 are also relatively available.
