Found: 1854 PCGS MS62 California Gold Rush Gold Dollar!
Everyone has heard about the 1849 California Gold Rush, but this beautiful U.S. gold dollar is unknown to most Americans. The U.S. Mint produced three varieties of gold dollars from the mid to late 1800s. The specimen we're offering here is the short-lived pre-Civil War "Type I" variety from 1854. The Type I Dollar was the smallest regular-issue U.S. gold coin and was a direct result of the California Gold Rush. These are "must-haves" for all gold collectors. This example grades Mint State-62 (MS62) by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS).
