The category of Pre-1933 US gold coins covers an extensive time period in US coining. Coins in this category date back to the first coins struck following the passage of the Coinage Act of 1792, authorizing the production of the first-ever sanctioned coins from the federal government. Lady Liberty was a common character used on gold coins during this period, and the $1 Liberty Head Gold Coin was among the most popular.
Pre-1933 $1 Liberty Gold Coins in the Type 1 category were first introduced in 1849. James B. Longacre was responsible for the design on both the obverse and reverse of the Liberty Gold coins in this category, with minting continuing for five years until 1854.
On the reverse face of each coin is the left-profile portrait of Lady Liberty. With her hair tied back and a crown atop her head, Liberty is surrounded by 13 stars representing the original American Colonies.
The obverse face of the coin features the face value of the coin ($1 USD) and its year of minting in the middle, with a wreath surrounding those markings. Around the outside, United States of America is engraved.
The United States Mint produced the bulk of its Pre-1933 $1 Liberty Gold Coins Type 1 at the Philadelphia Mint. While branches in Charlotte, Dahlonega, San Francisco, and New Orleans contributed, continuous production only occurred in Philadelphia. The coins in this product listing are graded VF, or Very Fine, which means there is little wear visible on the coin and the major features remain sharp in detail.
