Classic Liberty Design by James B. Longacre

James Longacre created the designs that appear on both faces of this coin. On the obverse is a left-side portrait of Liberty. She wears a coronet that bears an inscription of her name, "LIBERTY," and her long hair is held up in a bun by a string of beads. Thirteen stars, one for each of the original states, encircle the image along the rim.

The coin's face value, "1 DOLLAR," and date, "1861," are inscribed in the middle of the reverse. They are encircled by a wreath.
