  Total Value: $110,825.00

One thousand coins were struck on May 8, 1849. Today these are known as the No L variety because Longacre’s initial did not appear on the coin. Since the dies quickly cracked, new ones were prepared with the motif slightly redesigned. Most Type 1 gold dollars were struck in Philadelphia. These are the most common coins of the type today. They were also minted in the branch mints, Charlotte, Dahlonega, New Orleans, and San Francisco. The coins from these mints are much rarer than those of Philadelphia. The 1849-C Open Wreath gold dollar is the rarest with only four examples known today. While most dates and mints are available in circulated condition, only Philadelphia specimens are easily obtainable in mint state.

Liberty Head Gold Dollars (1849 - 1854) - Indian Princess Head, Small Head (1854 - 1856) - Indian Princess Head, Large Head (1856 - 1889)
