Gold Dollar


1855-C Gold Dollar. AU-53 (PCGS).
This is a truly delightful example of this scarce Charlotte issue exhibiting vibrant yellow-gold coloration. Considerable luster remains in the protected regions throughout, accompanied by just gentle friction across the high points. The obverse shows peripheral softness that is typical for the issue, though the reverse is handsomely defined. Only 9,803 examples of the 1855-C gold dollar were produced making it the second lowest mintage of the Type II issues and the only Charlotte Mint coin among them. Examples are typically heavily worn and with problems, making this wholesome AU piece an important find. PCGS has certified just 23 coins finer up through a mere pinnacle of MS-61, stressing the elusive nature of this issue in high grades.
PCGS# 7533. NGC ID: 25C5.
PCGS Population: 17; 23 finer through MS-61.
