Authorized by the Act of February 21, 1853, Three-Dollar Gold pieces were first struck in 1854. The coin was never popular as a medium of exchange, but collector interest was high, and people began saving them in 1879. Mintage concluded in 1889.

GreatCollections has sold 981 Three-Dollar Gold Pieces in the past 10 years, selling at prices from $395 to $118,125, in grades 1 to 66+. Of these, 116 were approved by CAC.

The design was made by: James B. Longacre.
