Now you can acquire America’s First Gold Dollar Coin!
U.S. gold coins from the 1700s are all but out of reach in price. A Very Fine grade 1795 $5 Half Eagle today is valued at $22,500 and a Very Fine grade 1795 $10 Eagle is valued at $36,500! But long ago when America was born, there was another gold coin being used-a $1 gold coin often referred to as “America’s First Gold Dollar Coin“. Today, this coin is an essential part of every American coin collection, although scarcity makes it extremely difficult to find.
A Gleaming, Gold Coin at the Very Foundation of Early U.S. Commerce!
Not only are these gold dollars valued by coin aficionados, they were coveted by American founders too. In the days of George Washington and Ben Franklin, silver coins were in wide circulation. By contrast, gold was for larger transactions and was considered more valuable-meaning fewer were seen in circulation.
How Did These Coins Survive?
It’s almost a miracle that these early American gold dollars exist today. Many have been lost. Others succumbed to wear and tear. Those that lasted until 1857 were called in and melted by the U.S. government. Given their scarcity, it’s unlikely we will be able to offer America’s First Gold Dollar Coin ever again!
All gold coins are only available via direct deposit.
