    1859 Gold Dollar in Gilt Copper
    Judd-256, PR63

    1859 G$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-256, Pollock-7010, Low R.7, Gilt PR63 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Both sides of this gold dollar pattern are similar to the regular-issue Indian Princess gold dollar, but show the characteristic taller, narrow font attributed to Anthony C. Paquet. Struck in copper and gilt, with a reeded edge. The status of this pattern issue is contested. It is cruder than Paquet's 1858 gold dollar, which, according to Pollock, "has lead to the conclusion by some writers that the 1859-dated pieces are not Mint products." However, this example, like others, does exhibit blatant proof surfaces with extensive die polishing in the fields. The portrait and wreath elements are particularly sharp. The gilding is bright yellow-gold.
