  • Title: $1 Liberty Head (1849-1854)

Full Description

Measuring only 13 millimeters in diameter, this $1 Liberty Gold Dollar has the distinction of being the smallest of the U.S. gold dollar coins. The Type I Gold Dollar bears the crowned image of Miss Liberty surrounded by 13 stars (signifying the original 13 states) on the obverse and a wreath encircles the denomination and date on the reverse.

On just a few of the 1849 issues, Miss Liberty’s head on this gold dollar is very small. Type I Gold Dollars are very rare in high mint state grades.
