1852 Annular Gold Dollar Pattern, Struck in Silver1852 PG$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-138 Thin, Pollock-165, Low R.7, PR62 NGC. CAC. Ex: Lemus. The obverse design consists of the legend USA above and 1852 below. The reverse features a circle of olive sprigs. Struck on an annular, thin silver planchet with a plain edge.
Public complaints that the standard gold dollar coin was too small and easily lost led to this innovative, annular design. Using this format, a coin with a diameter of 0.65 inches could be made using the same weight and fineness specifications as the gold dollar. Unfortunately, the annular design did not function well in high-volume coining operations. The issue comes in both thick and thin planchets.
The surfaces are lightly toned, with a pleasing, golden-rose hue. A few contact marks are consistent with the grade.
