Description & Analysis

The Philadelphia Mint only struck some 1,600 mint state and 36 proof gold dollars in 1880. This issue is quite popular due to the low mintage, but luckily many mint state pieces were saved at the time. This has made the 1880 gold dollar quite rare overall, but actually quite available in gem and higher. Proofs are very rare in any grade, however.
