Description & Analysis

There was a great upsurge in proof gold dollars produced, beginning in 1882. Mintages exceeded 1,000 coins per year by 1884 and stayed there through the series' end in 1889, no doubt reflecting increased demand from in-the-know dealers and collectors who foresaw the event. The mintage figure for the 1887 gold dollar was 1,079 pieces, a nominal amount for the 1884-88 period. One interesting phenomenon about the 1887 issue is that the four-digit date logotype is noticeably larger than, say, the 1882 or 1883 coinage.
