1888 Gold Dollar ANACS PR62CAM. A wonderful proof Cameo example of this second to last year issue of the gold dollar denomination. One of 1,079 proofs made for collectors, one of the largest numbers within the whole context of 19th century proof gold. Yet, examples are always in demand, as proof gold coinage is commonly regarded as prime art of American coinage.

The gold denomination hardly circulated after the 1860’s, and mintages of circulation strikes were small. In fact, some consider the only reason that circulation strikes were made at all to be consciousness at the Mint. In case only proofs (such as the present piece) were made for collectors, these would be rarities and much in demand. Finally, after decades of mostly low production, the denomination was discontinued in 1889.

The present piece is a wonderful “Cameod” piece of this issue. Certified by ANACS in new holder, considerable black/gold contrast can be seen when the coin is tilted. This coin is completely original, with all details fully struck as can be expected for a proof. A wonderful 19th century proof coin that is available for a very reasonable price.

Happy Collecting,
