Description & Analysis

The United States's coinage facility in San Francisco began operations as an official branch mint in 1854. The Mint delivered 123,826 Liberty Eagles this year. Although this is a limited mintage, the 1854-S is the most common S-mint Eagle produced prior to 1879. We stress, however, that most survivors are in lower circulated grades.
