    Description

    1859 Three Dollar Gold, MS64
    Exceptional Eye Appeal

    1859 $3 MS64 PCGS. This lower-mintage issue of 15,558 pieces is scarce in Uncirculated condition, and rare in grades higher than MS63. Even though more than 900 examples have been graded by NGC and PCGS, only around 25% of those pieces have been rated in mint condition, and fewer than 50 coin are graded finer than MS63.

    The current example is exceptionally appealing, with frosty mint luster and lovely, light honey-gold and rose toning. The strike definition is bold, and only the high points of Liberty's hair and the wreath bow, on the lower reverse, display mentionable softness. Both sides are well-preserved, and the few wispy surface marks are minimal. Population: 16 in 64 (1 in 64+), 8 finer (6/14).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 7K5K, PCGS# 7979)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
