Description

Choice 1854 Three Dollar Gold
Popular First-Year Type Coin

1854 $3 MS64 NGC. CAC. The 1854 three dollar gold piece represents the first year of the denomination, making it extremely popular with type collectors and series specialists. The 1854 boasts the largest mintage of the series, at 138,618 pieces, and the issue can only be called scarce in Choice condition. However, the population drops off dramatically in higher grades, and anything finer is quite rare. Currently, PCGS has certified only 28 coins in higher numeric grades (3/11).
The coin offered here is an attractive Choice example, with lustrous yellow and rose-gold surfaces. The design elements are sharply detailed, with bold definition on the feathers and Liberty's hair. The fields are remarkably free of contact marks.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25M3, PCGS# 7969)
