Additional Information and Historical Significance:
The Liberty Head Gold Dollar is the smallest coin in United States Mint history with a diameter of only 13mm. Originally designed by James B. Longacre, the Liberty Head Gold Dollar was first minted in 1841 and continued until 1854 when the Liberty Head design was changed to the "Indian Princess Head" and the coin became slightly larger, going from 13mm to 15mm. The purchasing power of a Gold Dollar in the 1800s would be equivalent to about $12-$18 today.
Throughout its 48-year mintage, the Gold Liberty Head Dollar was redesigned twice, after the initial 1841 release. The Type I Gold Liberty Head Dollar has remained the variation of choice amongst collectors and investors alike, due largely to its age (over 150 years old).
The Gold Liberty Head Dollar (Type I) continues to be experience high demand by investors and collectors throughout the world. Many investors select certified Pre-1933 U.S. Gold coins over modern gold bullion due to the historical significance and collectability of the coins. Historically, certified pre-1933 U.S. Gold coins retain their value better when the spot price of gold falls and appreciates in value when the spot price of gold rises. Certified Pre-1933 U.S. Gold coins are a great way to invest in the gold market and the collectibles market, with a single product. p>
