$1.00 - 1859-D NGC AU50 - $2800
NGC AU50 1859-D GOLD DOLLAR
The 1859-D is one of the two most available Type Three gold dollars from this mint along with the 1858-D. Only 4,592 were struck.
This is a pleasing, original piece which is better struck than normal due to the variety; the other known variety (11-N) comes with a weaker strike. Both sides are very clean and show pleasing natural russet shades which are deepest at the reverse border.
The most recent APR for an NGC AU50 1859-D gold dollar was Stack’s Bowers 11/15: 21009 at $2,585. Only one other straight graded AU50 has sold since the early 2000s.
Here is a pleasing, affordable example which would make a nice Type Three type coin at less than $3,000.
