    1854-S Type One Gold Dollar, MS64
    First Year of the New California Mint

    1854-S G$1 MS64 PCGS. CAC. Struck in the first year the San Francisco mint opened, Garrett-Guth theorize gold dollars were produced as "a relief to handle when compared to a pinch of gold dust." It must have been only a moderate relief as a mere 14,632 gold dollars were struck this year. The primary focus of the new mint was on double eagles, of which 364,866 pieces were produced. Few gold dollars are known today in near-Gem or finer grades. This is a bright yellow-gold example that is fully struck in all areas. There are a few small abrasions scattered over each side, but none that are singularly mentionable. Population: 8 in 64, 2 finer (7/16).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25C2, PCGS# 7527)

    Weight: 1.67 grams
