The Mint knew the Type 1 Gold Dollar was just too small, and hence too easily lost or misplaced. Their answer was a coin 15% larger in diameter, but thinner so as to maintain the same gold content. The design is basically a modified version of the 1854 $3 gold piece.


This Type has the legend, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, around the edge, not stars as on the previous Type. Liberty is still facing left with a coronet incused with LIBERTY. An Indian headdress was added to Liberty as a “national statement”. On the reverse is a more ornate wreath of corn, cotton, wheat and tobacco surrounding the denomination and the date. On branch Mint issues the mintmark is placed below the wreath.


Within each number of the coin grading scale is a small range of condition from low-end to high-end. Certified coins of the same grade can be of varying quality. Many of today’s collectors want coins that are solid or premium quality for their assigned grade. CAC holds coins to a higher standard so you can be confident in the value of yours. We verify previously graded coins … and award our sticker only to those coins that meet the standard for today’s selective buyer.


  • Verified. Your coin has been verified as meeting the standard for strict quality within its grade.
  • Guaranteed. CAC stands behind our verification by making markets in most actively traded coins.


CAC was founded by leading members of the numismatic community, including John Albanese, a respected authority on coin grading and the rare coin market.
