Why buy this Random Date 1849-1854 Type 1 Gold Liberty Head?

The Type 1 Gold Liberty Head is a prized piece among American coin enthusiasts. The main reason for that is that the Type 1 variety was only issued for six years before the Type 2 replaced it. Issued in the middle of the 19th century from 1849-1854, this coin was struck from 1.67 g of .900 fine gold. It will arrive in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

Featuring James Longacre's Famous Liberty Design

The designs on both faces of this coin were created by James Longacre. On the obverse is a left-side portrait of Liberty. She wears a coronet that bears an inscription of her name, "LIBERTY." Her long hair covers the back of her neck. Her portrait is encircled by thirteen stars, which symbolize the original states.

The coin's face value, "1 DOLLAR," and date, "1852," are inscribed at the center of the reverse. An open wreath largely encircles them. The "1" extends through the gap in the wreath. Beyond the wreath is an inscription of the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA."
