Seize Your Type III 'Indian Princess' California Gold Rush Gold Dollar

Prior to 1849 the United Sates Mint did not strike gold dollars because there wasn't enough gold available to do so. After gold was discovered in California in 1848, the precious metal began flowing into the mint in quantities sufficient for the mint to strike its first gold dollar in 1849. The Type I gold dollar was minted between 1849 and 1854. This Type III $1 Liberty Head gold dollar struck at the Philadelphia Mint dates between 1856 and 1889 and is in collector grade of Extremely Fine (XF). The attractive design features Miss Liberty on the obverse wearing a pompom headdress and a wreath enclosing the denomination of the reverse. This design was used by the mint between 1856 and 1889.
