    1836 Gold Dollar Pattern, PR66 Cameo
    Judd-67 Original, CoinFacts Plate Coin

    1836 PG$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-67, Pollock-70, R.5, PR66 Cameo PCGS. The obverse is a borrowed design, reworked by Christian Gobrecht, that originally appeared on Mexican two reales coinage of the 1820s. A Liberty cap is surrounded by a glory of rays. The reverse features the denomination 1 D. within a coiled palm frond, with the date below and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA above. Struck in 90% gold/10% copper, in coin alignment with a plain edge. Although there are exceptions, most of the gold restrikes from January 1844 (per David Akers) are struck in medallic alignment.

    This Cameo Premium Gem proof is among the nicest of this design we have seen, and apparently among the nicest PCGS has seen, as well. It is the "plate coin" on PCGS' CoinFacts website (most prominent of three depicted). The wheat-gold surfaces are nicely contrasted and free of mentionable distractions. The Judd-67 is among the few U.S. gold patterns that are within reach of many collectors. (NGC ID# 2V38, PCGS# 411795)
