Splendid PR66 Copper Judd-70 Gold Dollar Pattern1836 PG$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-70, Pollock-73, Low R.7, PR66 Red and Brown NGC. The obverse shows a glory of rays surrounding a cap inscribed LIBERTY. On the reverse a palm branch encircles the denomination 1 D., with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around and the 1836 date below. Struck in copper with a plain edge.
The gold dollar restrikes, such as the present piece, were made circa 1859 and later. These restrikes--some in medal turn, some in coin turn--were struck in silver, copper, and oroide. The design reflects a similar Cap and Rays design that appeared on Mexican silver coins about 1825.
The present copper restrike specimen offers a blue-green obverse with faded mint red around the periphery; the reverse is golden at the edges, with lilac in the center. Splendid brilliance and good proof contrast are hallmarks of both sides of this historic, interesting, and influential early pattern.
