David Akers (1975/88): Lower mintage than the 1863, but for some reason, not nearly as scarce. Many 1864 gold dollars show considerable evidence of die clashes on both the obverse and reverse and some specimens show the word LIBERTY in an arc below the date, similar to that seen on a number of other dates.
Ron Guth:

The 1864 Gold Dollar is a scarce, low-mintage date and it is one of the more challenging issues of the decade. Akers addressed the die clashing that affects many of the survivors, including those at the top end of the condition scale. Even the amazing PCGS MS69 example (now in the Simpson Collection) exhibits die clashing on the obverse. Gem and better examples are quite rare and fetch lots of money when they cross the auction block. For example, the Simpson MS69 sold for over $77,000 when it last appeared at auction in 2005. The estate of the late, great David Akers contained a superb example that sold as an NGC MS69 in 2014 for $58,750. Dr. Duckor, collectors extraordinaire, owns a PCGS MS68+ that he purchased from David Akers. These are three of the most impressive 1864 Gold Dollars one is likely to ever encounter.
