The first dollar denomination gold coin series issued by the United States Mint was the Type 1 Liberty Head series, released for a period of only six years, from 1849 until 1854. Measuring a scant 13 mm in diameter, the coin also holds a place in history as the Mint's smallest ever gold coin. This 1853 Liberty Head Gold Dollar containing 0.0484 Troy oz. of .900 fine gold was struck at the Philadelphia Mint, its final mintage reported to be 4,076,051 coins.
