Description & Analysis

This was the final year of high production for silver dollar coins before coinage was suspended in 1804 for more than 30 years. Both the dropping mintages and the ultimate suspension were due to the large exportation of American silver dollars overseas for their bullion value, effectively making them obsolete in domestic commerce. This void was filled with the resumption of half dollar production in 1801, which grew annually thereafter. The date 1800 is fairly common in circulated grades, though Mint State pieces are in very short supply.

There are 16 die marriages known for dollars dated 1800, and a notable feature is that the mixing and matching of obverse and reverse dies so prevalent for earlier dates was reduced in 1800. Thus, the ratio of dies made to die marriage is much closer than in earlier years. This tends to suggest also that carryover of older dies into this year was likely reduced, with most of 1800's production being dollars bearing that date.

A common yet popular variety is the so-called AMERICAI issue. One reverse die suffered a small break following the second A of AMERICA, creating the illusion of a crude letter I. This die was paired with two obverses (BB-191 and BB-192), and neither marriage is rare. In fact, the only rare marriages for 1800 are BB-182, BB-183 and BB-185.

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.
