The Liberty Gold Dollar Coin (Type 2)
aka: the Indian Princess
Did you know? The Type II Indian Head Gold Dollar Coin is
the rarest of the gold dollar coin series
In 1854, the US Mint increased the Gold Dollar Coin diameter to 15 mm, but its weight and
composition was not changed. Longacre's new front design was based on the three-dollar
piece. The coin is commonly called "Indian Princess". Historians suggest the design is based
on a Roman statue with a headdress.
The Type II Indian Head Gold Dollar Coin features the image of Miss Liberty wearing a
feathered Indian headdress on the front and a wreath encircling the denomination and date
on the reverse.
The diameter of the Type II Indian Head gold dollar was increased from the 13mm of the
Type I to 15mm, making the coins easier to handle. However, due to a flaw in the gold
dollar’s design, the coin did not strike up well and most showed noticeable weakness near
the numerals of the date.
Demand for the Type II Indian Head Gold Coin Dollar has traditionally been strong and it is
considered the key coin in the popular 12-Coin U.S. Gold Set.
The $1 Indian Princess (Type II) gold coin was only minted from 1854 until 1856, when it was
replaced by a new gold coin dollar design.
