Description & Analysis

Although the Philadelphia Mint only struck 7,620 gold dollar coins in 1881, many were saved by speculators and investors. Luckily for the numismatic community of today, this means that a large number of high grade examples have survived. In fact, NGC has graded numerous examples in MS68, and even three in MS69! (11/2016)

Only 87 proofs were produced this year, and it's likely that half or less still exist.
