Description & Analysis


Jeff Garrett: Although this date is the most common Type 1 gold dollar from the Dahlonega Mint, demand from type collectors has made it popular in any grade. The mintage is relatively small, but many were undoubtedly saved as first-year-of-issue souvenirs. Partial Prooflike examples are sometimes seen. Even though many were saved as first year of issue, high-grade examples are very rare. Only a couple survive that could be classified as Gems. The Mint State coins seen are usually MS 61 or MS 62. Most coins that are seen however are well worn, with the average coin being Very Fine or Extremely Fine. NGC has certified a single example in MS 65, but that coin has not traded at auction.
