1851 $1.00 PCGS MS65

Mintage: 3,317,671

 

This is one of the most common Type One gold dollars, along with the 1852-P and 1853-P. As it tends to be well-made and available in higher grades, it is very popular as a type coin.

 

This frosty yellow-gold Gem has a wonderfully original appearance. It is sharply detailed with a full date and very strong central detail There is a mint-made grease stain on the obverse from the star at 7:00 into the field and then terminating at Liberty’s throat.
