The $1 Liberty Gold Coin (Type 1) was among one of the first one-dollar coins produced in 90.0% pure by the United States. Over 150 years old, the coins are still available to collectors in limited quantities today and are among one of the most sought out designs in the pre-1933 gold coin category. The design featured on each $1 Liberty Gold Coin was created by famous US Mint engravor James B Longacre who was also responsible for several other US Mint coins during this period.
On the obverse of the Type 1 $1 Liberty Gold Coin is the profile image of Lady Liberty. In the depiction, Liberty is show wearing a crown with the inscription LIBERTY. Surrounding her are 13 stars representing the original 13 American colonies.
