* Population report per PCGS as of June 24, 2016.

In 1834, the Capped Bust Left design was retired from Gold U.S. coinage in favor of the Classic Head, designed by William Kneass, the second Chief Engraver of the United States Mint. The reverse remained largely unchanged, save for the omission of the motto above the eagle. This design persisted until the introduction of Gobrecht's venerable Liberty Head design in 1840.

Today, these Classic Head coins are desirable because of their short production run. While no issues in the series are particularly rare except for the 1838-C, all are scarce in uncirculated grades. PCGS estimates the extant population of Mint State 1836 coins at 300 across both varieties.
