The Indian gold dollar coin would reach full culmination in 1856 with its final revised design, the Type III $1 Indian Gold Coin. This definitive version of the gold dollar would enjoy a circulation period of 24 years until the Act of September 26, 1890 discontinued any further production of the $1 and $3 gold coin. Due to this, it became the last genuine gold dollar to ever be produced by the United States Mint.
Each Indian gold dollar featured in this collection has a gold content of approximately .048375 troy oz. as well as a MS64 (Mint State 64) graded condition. Both these classifications were the result of thorough examination by the either the NGC (Numismatic Guaranty Corporation) or the PCGS (Professional Coin Grading Service). Coins with an MS64 grade possess an average appearance that has only been mildly marred by hairline and contact marks. In order to prevent any further deterioration, all coins have been kept individually sealed in their NGC or PCGS certified case.
The design of the type III gold dollar coin has several elements that distinguish it from its predecessors. The first of these is the portrait of Lady Liberty. Instead of wearing her inscribed coronet, she is now depicted in a tribal war bonnet. Another change worth noting is our nation’s name along the edge of the coin, which replaced the original border of thirteen stars. The last, and perhaps most noticeable of the revisions, is the agricultural wreath which has been altered to include a variety of different crops, each from a distinct farming region of this country. Such revisions were meant to capture the deepening sense of cultural identity that was evolving within the US during this time in history.
Given its historical significance, the type III $1 Indian Gold Dollar Coin is certain to become an impressive addition to any collection or investment.
