Why add this 1854 Liberty Head Type I Gold $1 coin to your collection of 19th century American coinage?

The first dollar denomination gold coin series issued by the U.S. Mint was the Type 1 Liberty Head series, which was produced for only six years, from 1849-1854. Boasting a size of merely 13 mm in diameter, the coin is notably the smallest coin ever produced by the Mint. The coin was not popular among the general public, as its tiny size made it difficult to handle and easy to lose. As a result, the original Type I design was retired and replaced in 1854 with a thinner coin having a larger diameter.

  • This 1854 Liberty Head Gold Dollar contains 0.0484 Troy oz. of .900 fine gold.
  • The coin represents the final year of issue of the Type I design.
  • The gold dollar was struck at the Philadelphia Mint.
  • The coin is one of 855,502 issued.

Stunning Liberty Head Dollar Design

Obverse: Lady Liberty is depicted wearing a "LIBERTY" inscribed headband on the obverse, surrounded by thirteen stars.

Reverse: On the reverse, the inscription "1 DOLLAR 1854" appears at the center of a laurel wreath. "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" encircles the graphic. Imagery for the coin was crafted by James Barton Longacre, the 4th Chief Engraver of the United States Mint from 1844-1869.
