By diameter, this is the smallest coin ever minted by the United States. The design is rather plain, in large part due to the small size. Although very well received when issued, the tiny size led to many coins being lost. In the mid-1800s this was no small matter, as 1 dollar was a full day’s pay for many Americans. Thoughts quickly turned to replacing this Type with a larger coin. In 1854, banks were ordered to return to the Mint all Type 1 gold dollars they received. The Mint would melt the coins to create planchets for the new gold dollars.

Although formally known as the Liberty Head Type, in practice all numismatists simply refer to this coin as the “Type 1 Gold Dollar”.
