    1872 Amazonian Gold Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1225, PR64 Brown

    1872 G$1 Amazonian Gold Dollar, Judd-1225, Pollock-1367, Low R.7, PR64 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. William Barber's "Amazonian Gold" design has a bust of Liberty facing left, her hair flowing behind her head and below the bust truncation, wearing a Phrygian cap inscribed Liberty. There are 13 stars along the border and the date is below the bust. The reverse is similar to the Amazonian silver design with an eagle, wings spread, grasping three arrows in its right claw, its left leg raised up to support a shield. A ribbon crosses the shield with the inscription IN GOD WE TRUST. Around is the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, and below is the denomination ONE DOL. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. About a dozen examples are known in copper, but several are gilt. The original mint red has mellowed over both sides but not evenly, leaving iridescent blue, brown, yellow, and faint red that is brightened by the deeply reflective proof mirrors in the fields.
