    1852 Annular Gold Dollar
    Judd-145, Thin Planchet, PR65

    1852 PG$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-145 Thin, Pollock-173, Low R.6, PR65 PCGS. Simply designed with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the outer portion of the obverse with the date at 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. Bright yellow-gold color. This pattern design was an attempt to increase the diameter of the gold dollar denomination, which at 13 mm was easily lost and even smaller than the 14 mm three cent silver. The gold dollar denomination was necessary to commerce in 1852, since silver coins were widely hoarded as their bullion value exceeded their face value.

    On the present splendid specimen, the only flaw we see is the diagnostic defect above the second S in STATES, this being present an all known examples. Dashes of subtle gray toning on the lower obverse are of little consequence. A lovely example of this rare and popular gold pattern.
    Ex: Palm Beach Signature (Heritage, 3/2005), lot 6656, which realized $18,400; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2008), lot 3466, where it brought $25,300.
