    1856-D Gold Dollar, AU58
    Among the Scarcest D-Mint Products

    1856-D G$1 AU58 PCGS. CAC. Variety 8-K. The low-mintage 1856-D gold dollar has a well-deserved reputation for being one of the most challenging Dahlonega issues for any denomination. Only 1,460 of these diminutive gold pieces were struck, all from this set of dies, and the estimated survivorship amounts to 75 to 100 coins, according to specialist Doug Winter. Certainly, the 1856-D poses a significant challenge in near-Mint condition, and only a handful of Uncirculated coins exist as possible upgrades, maybe six or seven representatives. The central curls and 5 in the denomination are incomplete, but the rest of this orange-gold near-Mint example is well-struck. Population: 15 in 58, 7 finer (11/19).
