The 1851-C is far and away the most common gold dollar from this mint. It is reasonably easy to find in any circulated grade although examples with nice surfaces and natural color are harder to find now than in the past. Its low price and availability makes it an ideal coin for the type collector.

This sharply struck piece shows rich natural russet and greenish-gold hues on both sides with a considerable amount of satiny luster below these hues. This could would grade at least AU55 and possibly AU58 were it not for a small mark in the hair.

The last two APR’s for an NGC AU53 example of this date were each $1,495.

You won’t be able to find a nice 1851-C gold dollar for less than $2,000 much longer, as the demand outstrips the supply.
