Description & Analysis

Judd-136, Pollock-162, R.7.

The first of the annular format gold dollars. Struck in gold, perforated in the center, with a reeded edge. During the first few years after the discovery of gold in California, the scales were tipped in the favor of rising silver prices, causing silver coins to be hoarded from circulation. It was proposed to circulate a larger format gold half-dollar and gold dollar to fill this void, as some felt the regular issue gold dollar was inconveniently small. The matter was later remedied by the reduction of silver coinage weights and an increase in production in 1853. This first design was created from the reverse of a regular issue dime and a denticled, blank die on the opposite side. Dr. Judd wrote that only four pieces are known, one residing in the Mint Cabinet.
