Born of the California gold rush, and numismatic favorites since their years of issue, U.S. $1 gold coins of 1849-1889 are the ultimate “collector dollars.” But the scarcest, most coveted, and most beautiful are the very short-lived Type II Indian Princess Small Heads, the key to a complete gold dollar type set. Struck only from mid-1854 until early 1856, these 90% gold coins feature a small image of Liberty in a feathered Indian headdress with a band inscribed LIBERTY. The reverse features the denomination and date within a wreath of corn, cotton, wheat and tobacco.
