David Akers (1975/88): One of the half dozen most common gold dollars, and readily available even in gem condition.
Ron Guth:

The 1852 Gold Dollar is one of the most common dates of the entire series. It is not nearly as common as the uber-plentiful 1853, but it is slightly less common than the 1851. Despite being such a common date, the 1852 is rather scarce in MS66 and better grades. However, there are some standouts, including a single PCGS MS69 and some PCGS MS68's. Collectors can find Mint State 1852 Gold Dollars with ease, so they should be picky. Look for fully struck examples that have minimal bagmarks and good eye appeal. Such coins will always be desirable.
