About this Product

The $3 piece was a United States coin produced from 1854 to 1889. The $3 gold coin’s value was intended to tie in with the postal system. At the time, a first class postage stamp was worth 3-cents and was often sold in sheets of one hundred stamps. Therefore, the three-dollar piece was exactly enough money to purchase a sheet of stamps. Despite this potential use, the $3 coin was minted in small quantities, and was never widely circulated.
