1857-C Gold Dollar

1857-C Gold Dollar - All 1857-C Gold Dollar coins were poorly made. Most are softly struck with planchet flaws. Only 9 have been graded in Mint State by both PCGS and NGC combined with none higher than 2 MS62 examples. Because of the poor quality of coins of this date and mint, surface condition and luster are the principal considerations used in grading.

The Utah War also known as the Mormon War was a confrontation between Mormons and the United States government. It took place from May 1857 to July 1858. While there were some non-Mormon casualties, the conflict had no battles and ended through negotiation. More than 120 settlers that were bound for California from Arkansas and Missouri were killed by a group of Mormon militiamen. They deliberately lied and claimed that the settlers were killed by Indians. In the end, negotiations resulted in a full pardon for the Mormons, the change of Utah’s governor from Brigham Young to Alfred Cumming, a non-Mormon, and the peaceful access to Utah by the Army of the United States.
