A total of 15,000 1859-S gold dollars were made and this is a scarce issue in all grades although it is a bit more available than the 1857-S and 1858-S. It is not often seen in the higher grades and it is very scarce in Uncirculated with around a dozen or so known in Uncirculated.

This lightly worn , original example features medium russet hues over the obverse and reverse. Both sides are free of severe marks and there is a good amount of natural mint luster below. A small scrape below the U in UNITED serves as identification.

The last NGC/CAC AU58 example of this date to sell at auction brought $1,840 in the Heritage 3/11 sale.

As with all the Type III San Francisco gold dollars, the 1859-S is a terrific value in AU58.

CAC has approved five in this grade with none finer.
