    PR63 Cameo 1836 Gold Dollar
    Judd-67 Original, First Gold Pattern

    1836 PG$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-67, Pollock-70, R.5, PR63 Cameo PCGS. 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. Judd-67 has considerable historical importance, as it is the first Federal gold pattern as well as the first appearance of the gold dollar denomination. This design was also restruck in the late 1850s, but this piece shows no trace of an undertype or medallic alignment, and we believe it is an original striking from 1836. This well struck and flashy specimen is mostly orange-gold but displays hints of rose-red throughout the reverse legends. A few delicate thin marks are noted near the denomination. (NGC ID# 26VC, PCGS# 11260)
