Description & Analysis

Just 1,120 examples were produced. It is likely that a number of these were saved as curiosities or souvenirs as approximately 10% of the original mintage is known today--an exceptional high percentage for a branch mint gold coin from this era. The 1854-D three dollar gold piece is most often seen in the XF40 to AU50 range. It is rare in properly graded AU55, very rare in AU58 and extremely rare in Uncirculated. We are aware of two to four Mint State coins.
