1852 Ring Dollar in Gold
1852 PG$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-145 Thin Planchet, Pollock-173, Low
R.6, PR66 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Simply designed with UNITED STATES
OF AMERICA around the outer portion of the obverse with the date
around the bottom. The reverse has DOLLAR at the top with a wreath
around the lower margin. Struck in gold, perforated in the center,
with a plain edge. The idea behind the ring dollar, also known as
the annular dollar, was to have a large diameter coin while
maintaining the intrinsic gold value of one dollar. This is one of
the most frequently encountered pattern gold pieces that are
actually struck in gold, with about three dozen known per the
USPatterns.com website. That is an important consideration for the
advanced pattern collector. This brilliant Premium Gem proof has
lovely light yellow surfaces with trivial toning spots of no
consequence. Population: 6 in 66 (1 in 66+), 1 finer (4/20).
