1853 gold Liberty Head $1 are generally common in terms of date, but the Charlotte (C) and Dahlonega (D) issues are far scarcer, as is virtually a rule for $1 gold Liberty Head coin coins. Liberty Head gold dollar coins were designed by James B. Longacre, the chief mint engraver whom many numismatists know designed the Indian Head cent and two cent coin. This series was also the smallest U.S. coin to ever be produced, with each piece measuring at a mere 13 millimeters in diameter and weighing only 1.672 grams.

Here’s a look at the mintages and values of 1853 Liberty Head $1 gold coins:

  • 1853, 4,076,051 – $250

  • 1853-C, 11,515 – $1,200

  • 1853-D, 6,583 – $1,300

  • 1853-O, 290,000 – $270

*Values are for coins in a grade of Very Fine, unless otherwise noted.

1853-C (Charlotte) and 1853-D (Dahlonega, GA) $1 Liberty Head coins are especially scarce, and you should therefore take great caution in buying them either sight-unseen or raw, as many collectors do. That is, of course, unless you know the coin dealer you’re working with is reputable, as are the vast majority. Do your research when buying any gold dollars to ensure you’re getting the best value for your money.
