    1836 'Cap and Rays' Judd-67 Gold Dollar
    A Pattern Classic, PR63 Cameo

    1836 PG$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-67, Pollock-70, R.5, PR63 Cameo PCGS. CAC. The obverse features a Liberty cap surrounded by rays of glory, similar in design to certain Mexican coin designs of the era. The reverse features the denomination 1 D. within a coiled palm frond, with the date below and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA above. Christian Gobrecht is credited with both designs. Struck in gold with a plain edge. This first U.S. Mint pattern introduced a new potential denomination, the gold dollar, though it would not be realized until 1849. This lightly hairlined Select example has gleaming yellow-gold fields with a hazy patch to the right of the 1 in the denomination. Attractive contrast enhances the eye appeal.
