    1852 Annular Gold Dollar in Gold
    Judd-141, PR66
    Among Finest Certified

    1852 PG$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-141, Pollock-169, Low R.7, PR66 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse has the letters USA above and the date below. The reverse design has the denomination expressed as DOLLAR above and a wreath below. Struck in gold with a plain edge and a broad central perforation. The purpose of the proposed ring or annular gold dollar pattern was to increase the diameter. This would make the denomination more popular with the public, which complained of frequently losing examples. Gold dollars were in common use during 1852, since Seated silver coin was hoarded and unavailable in commerce. This orange-gold representative is nicely struck and shows only trivial imperfections, such as a trio of tiny field lint marks (as coined) near the S in USA. Population: 2 in 66, 0 finer (11/20).
    Probably Ex: Abe Kosoff; Wilkison Collection (Paramount, 1975).
