1850 $1.00 PCGS MS65

Mintage: 481,953

 

The 1850 is, by far, the hardest Type One gold dollar from Philadelphia to locate. It becomes rare in properly graded MS65 and, unlike the common dates from 1851-1853, it is not an issue that is seen from time to time in “wonder grades.”

 

The best 1850 gold dollar that I have seen is the PCGS MS67 (ex Eliasberg) coin that was last sold for a record-breaking $54,625 in the 2010 ANA auction.

 

The 1850 gold dollar is not easy to find in Gem.
