    1836 'Cap and Rays' Gold Dollar
    Judd-67 Original, PR65 Cameo

    1836 PG$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-67 Original, Pollock-70, R.5, PR65 Cameo PCGS. The design was engraved by Christian Gobrecht and the obverse was Mexican influenced with a Liberty cap surrounded by rays of glory. The reverse features the denomination 1 D. within a coiled palm frond, with the date below and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA above. Struck in gold with a 10% copper alloy with a plain edge. Judd-67 is the first gold dollar pattern struck in anticipation of a future coinage. It is also one of the few gold patterns, actually struck in gold that can be obtained at a somewhat reasonable price. Both originals and restrikes exist for Judd-67, with one overstruck example known on an 1859 gold dollar as its host. That piece is clearly visible on the USPatterns.com website. Each side displays rich, even reddish-gold color. The fields are deeply reflective with strongly contrasting frosted devices.
