    1868 Gold Dollar, MS67
    Condition Census Rarity

    1868 G$1 MS67 PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Mint State examples of the 1868 gold dollar survive in almost all numeric levels, although the vast majority grade no finer than MS64. Gem and better pieces are universally rare, and the finest of these are almost never seen. This Superb Gem is a Condition Census example. PCGS lists just four coins in this grade with two finer, while NGC lists one in this grade and one finer (9/20). We have seen only two Superb Gem 1868 gold dollars in the last decade, one of which we had the pleasure of offering twice -- once in 2012, and again in 2020. The rarity of such coins continues to be highly appreciated by Registry collectors.

    The Simpson coin displays a sharp strike and luminous, semireflective fields. The rich peach-orange luster is unabraded, and eye appeal is outstanding. Population: 4 in 67, 2 finer (9/20).(Registry values: N1)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25D4, PCGS# 7567)

    Weight: 1.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
