Description & Analysis

Production of half dollars rose during 1822 from the preceding two years, and some 15 die marriages are known for the date. These resulted from the mixing of 14 dies each for obverse and reverse. Two of the obverses traditionally have been labeled as 1822/1, though the underlying numeral is so faint as to bring this attribution into question. More will be found about these coins in the entry that follows.

1822 half dollars are plentiful in Mint State, though gems are quite scarce. There are no rare varieties, but O-103 is fairly scarce and will bring a premium among series specialists.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
