Gold Dollar


1849 Gold Dollar. Close Wreath. MS-65 (PCGS).
Gorgeous satin surfaces are awash in vivid golden-yellow patina. Well produced with overall bold striking detail, both sides are exceptionally well preserved, well deserving of the Gem Mint State rating. The Close Wreath is the final variety of gold dollar struck in the Philadelphia Mint during the denomination's inaugural year. While lower grades examples are more available than those of the 1849 Open Wreath, the Close Wreath is the more challenging variety of the issue to locate in the finest Uncirculated grades, as here. This significant condition rarity belongs in an advanced gold cabinet.
PCGS# 7503. NGC ID: 25BA.
PCGS Population: 20; 9 finer (MS-66+ finest).
From the Beasley Collection.
