    Gilt 1836 'Gold' Dollar, Judd-70, PR64

    1836 PG$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-70 Gilt, Pollock-73, Low R.7, PR64 NGC. The obverse features a Liberty cap surrounded by rays of glory, similar in design to certain contemporary Mexican issues. 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 copper and gilt with a plain edge. These pieces appear to be much rarer than the Low R.7 given them. We have very few auction records for Judd-70; in fact, we only know of four that have been offered since 1990. The gilt is remarkably well done on this piece. Only on the reverse can one see two small copper areas where the gilt is no longer present. The accompanying NGC Photo Proof states, "Coined in copper and then plated with gold, this rare piece displays a needle-sharp strike and smooth, satiny surfaces."
    (NGC ID# 26VC, PCGS# 11260)
