Type 2 $1 Gold Indian Coins were produced by the United States Mint only from 1854 to 1856. The coins were introduced in 1849 with the Liberty Coronet design and updated in 1854 with the feathered headdress design. The Type 2 design features what is known as the “small head” Liberty design. From 1857 to the conclusion of the series in 1889, the US Mint released the Type 3 design with this same image in the “large head” design.
On the obverse side of the Pre-33 $1 Gold Indian Coin Type 2 Coin is the image of Liberty. This left-profile effigy of Liberty was created by James B. Longacre and depicted Liberty wearing a full, feathered headdress. Around her figure is the inscription of “United States of America.”
The reverse face of the Pre-33 $1 Gold Indian Coins is the image of the denomination and date mark. These elements are surrounded by a full wreath on this side of the coin, the first time this occurred. Previously, the US Mint offered up only the denomination and date mark with a half-wreath surrounding those elements.
