    Description

    1854-D Three Dollar, AU53
    Only Dahlonega Issue

    1854-D $3 AU53 PCGS. The first year of issue for the three dollar gold denomination saw production at Philadelphia, New Orleans, and Dahlonega. All later issue three dollar pieces were coined only at Philadelphia or San Francisco. Production at Dahlonega was minimal in 1854, just 1,120 pieces. Demand for surviving examples from that mintage is high, not only from specialized collectors but from type coin aficionados who seek gold coins from the Georgia Mint.

    This wholesome example has light yellow surfaces with trivial grade-consistent marks. The strike is above average and the eye appeal is excellent. Population: 12 in 53, 33 finer (8/16).
    From The Twelve Oaks Collection.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 25M4, PCGS# 7970)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
