Description & Analysis

In early January of the following year, the second Mint building was finally ready for occupation, thus the coinage of 1832, from half cents through half eagles, represent the end of an important era in American numismatics. The 1833 Mint Report, submitted on January 19th of that year by Mint Director Samuel Moore recorded the mintage of 1832 quarter eagles as 4,400 coins, or $11,000 face value. Today, we estimate that about 3% of that original mintage survives, or just over 130 coins.
