Description 1854 $3 AU53 NGC. The first-year mintage of 138,618 pieces for the three dollar gold piece was the highest amount of the entire 45-year series. Gold was plentiful from California, but after the first few years public enthusiasm for the denomination waned. Today, the issue is a favorite choice for type and for series collectors, both as the first year of issue and for its availability. This attractive About Uncirculated example is minimally abraded with smooth surfaces from light wear, and handsome, green-gold color. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $969.38. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
