1853 1 Dollar Gold Liberty Type I NGC AU58
1853 $1 Gold Liberty Type I NGC AU58
Gold is timeless and always coveted. One of the great ways to own it is when it's struck into gold coins like this 1853 $1 Gold Liberty Type I coin. It was minted from California Gold Rush gold that began flowing into the mint after James Marshall pulled a big gold nugget out of the American River in California in January of 1848.
A very popular way to own vintage gold coins like this one is when they're graded by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). They're an independent, third party grading service, and after they certify the coin's authenticity and grade, they seal in in a protective acrylic holder.
This 1853 example grades NGC About Uncirucated-58 (AU58). That's just one point shy of full-uncirculated status. Many collections like the value associated with a near uncirculated example, and this coin makes an excellent addition to your collection, particularly as the first of three gold dollars for your 12-piece U.S. Mint Gold Type Coin set. This set has been a popular way to own U.S. gold coins for decades. It consists of one coin of each type of gold coin struck by the mint for circulation between 1849 and 1933.
