1855-P 1 Dollar Gold Indian Princess Type II PCGS XF45
Out of Hundreds of Thousands Produced, These Are the Few That Survived!
The U.S. Mint struck millions of gold dollars between 1849 and 1889. However, there is one issue of these gold dollars that are among the toughest to find -- the Type 2 Indian Princess Head Dollars produced between 1854 and 1856. These coins bridged the gap between the Type 1 Liberty Head Gold Dollars and the Type 3 Indian Princess Head Gold Dollars (the difference from Type 2 being a larger portrait in the center). But why are there so few of these coins still remaining?
First, it comes down to pure numbers. Around 1.6 million of these Type 2 coins were produced during their three year run. It sounds like a big number until you compare it to the massive cumulative gold dollar mintages that came both before and after the Type 2 coins. Second, the Type 2 Gold Dollar was thinner and larger than the first or third type. As such, it could be easily bent or damaged. In addition, because of its attractive design and "petite" size, it was a favorite coin to use in jewelry, which ultimately destroyed the collector value of many of these coins.
So, you can imagine how big of a find this 1855 Type 2 Indian Princess Head Gold Dollar is for us! Each of these gold dollars grades Extremely Fine-45 (XF45) by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) -- among the highest grades of these coins available to collectors.
