    Gorgeous 1864 Gold Dollar
    PR65 ★ Cameo NGC

    1864 G$1 PR65 ★ Cameo NGC. The 1864 proof gold dollar, showing a mintage of 50 coins, is an incredible rarity. David Bowers, writing in A Guide Book of Gold Dollars, says likely no more than 25 or so pieces were distributed from the original mint figure. He also estimates the extant population to be 12 to 15 examples, a figure (allowing for resubmissions) consistent with the combined certified population.
    The deeply mirrored fields yield stunning contrast with the frosty motifs. Additionally, a solid strike delivers bold delineation to all of the design elements, heightening this variance even more. Peach-gold surfaces are impeccably preserved. A minor graze on Liberty's cheek and a couple of inoffensive field marks are all that stand in the way of an even higher numerical grade.
    Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 4-5/2009), lot 2665.
