Three Dollar Gold - Three Dollar Gold Piece

Three Dollar Gold - Longacre's Three Dollar Gold (1854 - 1889): Of all the gold coin series, Longacre's Three Dollar Gold is in many ways the least complex. There was just one major design, the Indian Princess motif, and the coins were produced continuously from 1854 to 1889. In the first year a variety was made in that all the coins have the word DOLLARS in small letters, and in 1873 there were Open and Closed 3's in the date.

Three Dollar Gold - Three Dollar Gold Piece

Three Dollar Gold - Longacre's Three Dollar Gold (1854 - 1889): Of all the gold coin series, Longacre's Three Dollar Gold is in many ways the least complex. There was just one major design, the Indian Princess motif, and the coins were produced continuously from 1854 to 1889. In the first year a variety was made in that all the coins have the word DOLLARS in small letters, and in 1873 there were Open and Closed 3's in the date.
