    1856-D Gold Dollar, AU58
    Remarkably Low-Mintage Issue
    Only 1,460 Pieces Produced

    1856-D G$1 AU58 PCGS. Variety 8-K. All 1,460 1856-D gold dollars were struck from a single die pair in May 1856, and between 75 and 100 examples are believed extant, half of which are VF-XF. This apricot-gold Borderline Uncirculated example is crisply struck for the issue, as only the U in UNITED, the O in DOLLAR, and the 5 in the date display softness. Light clash marks are noted near Liberty's profile, but the surfaces are only faintly marked. Luster illuminates the legends and devices. A significant opportunity for the Southern gold specialist. Population: 15 in 58, 7 finer (7/19).
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 9/2007), lot 3144.
    From The Poulos Family Collection, Part II.

    When it came to selling my coin collection I decided they were my first and only choice. They never disappoint. Excellent prices when selling through their auctions and you don’t even have to put any reserves on any coins. Simply the biggest company but more importantly the best.
