About $1 Gold Ty 1 [Type] $1 Gold
The year was 1849 and along with the gold rush came brand new currency to America in the Gold Dollar and the Double Eagle, which both shared the same Liberty obverse. Since there was so much gold to be had and these Gold Dollars were so small, as compared to many previous gold issues, their mintages were relatively high. All five mints at the time produced the Liberty Gold Dollar from 1849 to 1854. Most Liberty Gold Dollars were struck in Philadelphia making a type or date set easy to complete but the same cannot be said for a full date and mintmark collection. C and D minted issues got their gold locally with no assistance from the California gold rush or the “mother-mint” in Philly. That has caused any early Gold Dollars from Charlotte or Dahlonega to become elusive rarities in today’s market. Collectors normally look for high grade pieces but they are certainly interested in any fully original rarity from the branch mints. This design was short lived because of its small size which drew much negativity from 1850’s America.
About CDN Prices
All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.
CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.
Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.
Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.
CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.
