When you think about buying gold from the Pre-33 timeframe in American history, it is mostly the gold coins of the Gold Eagle Series that jump out at investors. The denominations from this series of $2.50, $5, $10, and $20 coins were available, in most denominations, from the 1790s to 1933. During the 19th century, however, $1 gold coins were also available in the United States during a 50-year timeframe. Today, Pre-33 $1 Gold Liberty Coins from the Type 3 release are available to you online at

The United States Mint introduced the $1 (USD) gold coin in 1849 following the massive influx of gold to the US Treasury from the California Gold Rush. A design was available for the coins starting in 1849 that was created by James B. Longacre and based on the Liberty Coronet images from the aforementioned Gold Eagle denominations. By 1854, redesigns were underway that resulted in Type 3 coins emerging in 1856 as the go-to image throughout the rest of the coining history for this denomination.

All of the Pre-33 $1 Gold Liberty Coins in this listing have the Type 3 design in use from 1856 to 1889. These coins earned a Mint State 63 certification from either the PCGS or the NGC. Coins in this condition have scattered contact marks in the prime focal areas, a few scattered hairlines, and slightly impaired luster, but are overall attractive items given the age of the specimen.

These coins are offered to you at random from We select all coins based on availability when your payment is processed. We cannot guarantee a particular date mark or which grading house issued the label. If you buy more than one, please keep in mind you may receive matching date marks and labels.

Lady Liberty is featured in left-profile relief on the obverse of Pre-33 $1 Gold Liberty Coins. The Type 3 design features Liberty in left-profile relief wearing an indigenous feathered headdress. The imagery includes only an inscription of the nation of issue.

For the reverse of the Pre-33 $1 Gold Liberty Coins, the US Mint uses only the denomination, date mark, and a wreath. This design concept stuck through both the Type 1 and Type 2 designs for the reverse, with the Type 2 used in conjunction with the Type 3 obverse design. Type 2 reverse designs had smaller text and a larger wreath that more fully encompassed the denomination and date.
