Description & Analysis

A total mintage of 510,000 dimes for calendar year 1825 is presumed to have included 100,000 1824-dated coins which comprised the initial delivery in August. The reconstructed mintage for pieces dated 1825 is thus 410,000, though some additional dimes bearing the date 1825 may have been coined in 1827. Such was the nature of the early U. S. Mint, when dies were too precious to be discarded until they failed altogether.

The use of four obverse dies and three reverses resulted in a total of five known die marriages. There are no obvious distinctions between these that would merit separation within general coin references, so only specialists are concerned with their individual rarities.

JR-2 and JR-4 are both common, while JR-1 and JR-3 are scarce. JR-5 alone is a true rarity, with just a few dozen known.

Scattered examples of the more common varieties are known in Mint State, but this date is certainly not common in such condition.

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.
