    1852 Ring Dollar in Gold
    Judd-145, Thin Planchet, PR66

    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).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 299B, PCGS# 11604)
