Why add this 1851 Liberty Head Gold $1 coin to your collection?

The U.S. Mint's first one dollar face value gold coin was the Type 1 Liberty Head series, minted for only six years, from 1849 until 1854. Featuring the artistry of Chief Engraver James Barton Longacre, the series represents the smallest gold coin in the history of the Mint. Measuring a tiny 13 mm in diameter, this Liberty Head Dollar coin was struck from 0.0484 Troy oz. of .900 fine gold at the Philadelphia Mint in 1851, its final mintage reported to be 3,317,671.

The Liberty Head Dollar Design

A left facing portrait of Lady Liberty adorns the obverse, her hair held in place by a beaded headband inscribed with "LIBERTY." The image is surrounded by thirteen six-pointed stars in tribute to the original colonies.

The inscription "1 DOLLAR 1851" is centered on the reverse, framed by a laurel wreath tied with a ribbon. The additional inscription "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" curves above, encircling the majority of the wreath.

Stunning Mint State 63

This 1851 Liberty Head Gold Dollar coin received the impressive grade of Mint State 63 from Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). Expect the coin to be well struck, with a high percentage of original Mint luster and excellent eye appeal. The coin is sonically sealed in a protective holder accompanied by a NGC certification label.
