Christian Gobrecht died suddenly on July 23, 1844. At that time, mostly due to his political connections with John C. Calhoun, John B. Longacre was hired to fill the position of Mint Engraver. When the mint became unhappy with Longacre they had this coin designed by Bouvet in Paris. Although after a coupled of botched attempts at making the new Gold dollar and double eagle denominations Longacre successfully produced a suitable issue. After which Longacre continued at Chief Engraver until his death in 1869 and the coins designed by Bouvet were never produced.
