    Description

    1850-D Gold Dollar, AU55
    Scarcer D-Mint Issue

    1850-D G$1 AU55 NGC. Variety 2-C. Gold dollar production declined significantly in its second year of production at the Dahlonega Mint, with only 8,382 coins struck, and this issue's survival rate is significantly lower than that of the 1849-D. Only 125 to 175 examples are believed extant, with the majority of these only in XF and lower grades. This Choice AU representative is pleasantly luminous in honey-gold hues. Slight softness is noted on the central hair curls and the left-hand stars, a combination of a slightly weak strike and minor high-point wear. Census: 17 in 55, 43 finer (12/14).(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25BH, PCGS# 7511)

    Weight: 1.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
