1854 Gold $1 Type Two PCGS MS63. A brilliant and lustrous example struck from lightly clashed dies, as is typical of a large portion of Type 2 gold dollars seen. A thoroughly flashy and attractive example. Type 2 gold dollars were coined at the Philadelphia Mint only during the years 1854 and 1855, and accordingly, have long been near the top of the wish list for virtually all 19th-century U.S. gold type collectors. The overall decline in the spot gold price has had it’s effect on the prices for collectible “generic” gold coins. Such coins like this traded in the five-figure range not too long ago, making this particular coin a really excellent value for advanced dollar collectors or twelve piece Type set collectors.
