The Gold dollar, the smallest denomination standard issued United States gold coin, first appeared in 1849, when the government introduced two new denominations, the dollar and double eagle, to exploit vast quantities of yellow metal coming to the East from the California Gold Rush. Gold dollars were minted continuously from 1849 through 1889, although mintages were largely restricted after the Civil War.
