1855 $1 Gold Indian Princess Type 2 NGC AU53

This 1855 $1 Gold Indian Princess Type 2 gold piece grades About Unciruclated-53 (AU53) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). It shows strong luster and superb detail, with only the smallest hint of circulation evident at the coin's highest points.

What that means is, this miniature work of art showing Miss Liberty as an Indian Princess is the choice for any discerning collector to add the his or her collection. It's a two-fold addition to your gold coins, because you can enjoy it as a single example of this great classic artistry of the mint's vintage gold production, or you can make it the centerpiece of your 12-piece U.S. Gold Type set, a collection of one coin of every type of gold coin produced by the mint between 1849 and 1933.

The Type II Gold dollar was only struck for three years, 1854, 1855, and 1856 (1856 was only struck at the San Francisco Mint). Its mintages were also quite small. In 1854, only 783,943 coins were struck, all at the Philadelphia Mint. These low mintages make these Type II gold coins some of the toughest to obtain of all the gold coins ever struck by the U.S. Mint. Not only that, but at 15 millimeters, the Type II gold dollar is slightly larger than the previous Type I gold dollar. That resulted in the coin being thinner, and much more easily damaged. Many were also used in jewelry because of the attractive design of Miss Liberty in a pom-pom headdress.
