Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88): This is the most common variety of 1849 gold dollar and its mintage is probably on the order of half of the 688,567 total mintage reported for the year at the Philadelphia Mint. Choice specimens are reasonably available, although they are certainly not as common as as for 1851, 1852, 1853, or 1854.
