1854-O | $3 Princess Gold | NGC | AU55

The 1854-O $3 Gold Princess Coin is a captivating and rare piece of American numismatic history. Certified by NGC in About Uncirculated 55 (AU-55) condition, this coin is the first and only $3 gold coin issued at the New Orleans Mint, known for its unique "O" mintmark.

Only 24,000 were issued and it is rare to encounter them in higher grades than this.  When it does happen, the price point jumps considerably.

On the obverse, the coin features a left-facing portrait of Lady Liberty wearing a feathered headdress, symbolizing the nation’s respect for its indigenous heritage. This elegant design, crafted by James B. Longacre, is surrounded by the inscription "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA." The intricate detail in Lady Liberty's headdress and the fine craftsmanship of the engraving are key highlights of this coin's appeal.

The reverse showcases a wreath composed of tobacco, corn, wheat, and cotton, encircling the denomination and the year of mintage, 1854. The wreath symbolizes the agricultural prosperity of the United States during the mid-19th century. The New Orleans Mint's distinctive "O" mark is positioned below the denomination, indicating its origin.

This coin's AU-55 grade reflects its well-preserved condition, with moderate wear and considerable luster remaining. Due to their rarity and unique characteristics, coins from the New Orleans Mint, especially in this condition, are highly sought after.
