Unearth a piece of American history with the Pre-33 $1 Indian Gold Type 2 Coin – a treasure from the United States Mint with a captivating story. This gold coin, only minted from 1854 to 1856, holds a special place in numismatic lore, and now you can add a certified Pre-33 $1 Indian Gold Type 2 Coin to your collection through Provident Metals.
Each Pre-33 $1 Indian Gold Coin in this listing arrives in remarkable MS60 condition. Coins with this grade showcase dull mint luster with some larger detraction contact marks, but retain no trace of circulation wear.
Obverse design elements on these Pre-33 Indian Gold Coins feature the Type 2 design, exclusive to the years 1854 to 1856. This design, known as the Small Head Indian Princess, showcases a proportionally smaller bust of Liberty in comparison to the total field of the coin, distinguishing it from the previous Coronet and subsequent Large Head Indian Princess designs. The inscriptions include LIBERTY on the band of the headdress and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around her portrait.
The reverse visuals on the Pre-33 $1 Indian Gold Coin also include the Type 2 design, used from 1854 to 1889. This redesigned version by Longacre features a larger, more diverse wreath, representing the agriculture of both the North and the South. The wreath includes depictions of cotton, corn, tobacco, and wheat. The inscriptions read 1 DOLLAR and the date.
The Pre-33 $1 Indian Gold Coin holds an intriguing history with three different obverse designs and two distinct reverse designs. James B. Longacre’s initial obverse design was influenced by Christian Gobrecht’s Liberty Coronet on the US Eagles, as well as his own design for the Double Eagle. In 1854, Longacre introduced a captivating depiction of Liberty as an Indian Princess, wearing a feathered headdress.
