Please note: THESE COINS ARE EITHER PCGS OR NGC GRADED AS MS62 CONDITION AND WILL BE FROM YEARS 1849-1854.
The United States Mint produced $1 Gold Coins from 1849-1889. During its 40 year mintage, the coin would undergo three major design changes. These particular $1 Liberty Gold Coins are the original version, which circulated between 1849 and 1854. Each of these coins has a gold content of .048375 troy oz. and has been certified by either the NGC (Numismatic Guaranty Corporation) or the PCGS (Professional Coin Grading Service) with an MS62 (Mint State 62) grade. Coins graded as MS62 are distinguished by their worn but acceptable condition that has been scuffed by hairline and contact marks. To prevent further deterioration, coins have been kept in their individually sealed NGC or PCGS certified slab.
As the first version of the $1 Liberty Gold piece, this coin features the original Coronet design that was initially created by James B. Longacre. The Coronet design features Lady Liberty in profile, wearing a crown inscribed with her name. She is framed by a series of 13 stars, each one representing one of the original colonies. This classical rendition of Lady Liberty harkens back to ancient Greek and Roman currency.
The reverse side of the coin turns to rural America for its inspiration. It displays its value and mintage year in the center with our nations name arched above it. An open wreath encircles this information as a tribute to the agriculture industry and its hardworking farmers.
