Each of the 1856 Pre-33 $3 Indian Princess Gold Coins featured here is offered in magnificent Mint State 61 condition. Coins with this grade exhibit a marginal, diminished mint luster, along with various visual flaws such as small contact marks, fewer large contact marks, scuff marks, and noticeable hairlines.


In the obverse design of the 1856 Pre-33 Indian Princess Gold Coins, Longacre offers a distinct portrayal of Lady Liberty. A left-profile bust of Liberty adorned with an ornate, feathered headdress serves as the centerpiece.


On the reverse side of the 1856 Pre-33 $3 Indian Princess Gold Coin, the mint depicts a captivating wreath crafted from corn, wheat, tobacco, and cotton representing the abundant harvest found across the nation. This particular version features the Type II reverse, showcasing the “large dollar” design with a larger opening at the top of the wreath, housing the date and face value of the coin at its center.


Introduced in 1854, the $3 Indian Princess Gold Coin saw an immediate reverse redesign in 1855. However, the obverse and reverse design elements remained unaltered throughout the coin’s production. While these coins circulated predominantly on the US West Coast in the 19th century, they were not as popular on the East Coast, where paper currency was gaining prominence among Americans.
