Bought two, very happy with one, slightly disappointed two other

By  Dave L

from Michigan


I purchased two of these. Both coins looked great, one was a fairly key date. Since both looked high AU or low MS I sent both to PCGS. One came back AU55 which I was pleased with, other came back as 'Cleaned'... I still give 4 stars because the 1st coin was solid (reason I went back for a second), and also because the value difference between a cleaned AU and normal AU is minor for this particular coin.


  • Collectible (lower mintage)

  • Poor Condition

Beautiful Pre Civil War Gold Coin

By  Cat Daddy

from Naperville, IL


I always wanted a type I U.S. gold dollar because it is a real piece of history. The one dollar gold coins only had a short run so there weren't too many produced. The 1852 coin came on an AU graded PCGS slab which was a nice surprise. I was only expecting a loose coin. Nice coin, good price and fast delivery as always from APMEX.

The coin is a interesting part of American history and has a low mintage. APMEX went above when it came to the quality of this purchase.
