Three-dollar piece
The three-dollar piece was a gold coin produced by the United States Mint from 1854 to 1889. The coin was designed by Mint Chief Engraver James B. Longacre. Its obverse bears a representation of Lady Liberty wearing a headdress of a Native American princess and the reverse a wreath of corn, wheat, cotton, and tobacco. Although over 100,000 were struck in the first year, the coin saw little use. The piece was last struck in 1889, and Congress ended the series the following year.Coin: United States Mint; photograph: Jaclyn Nash/National Numismatic Collection
