Description & Analysis

Just a single pair of dies accounted for the entire mintage of 1802 half dollars. These were delivered from the coiner to the treasurer under three warrants dated January 26 (7,910 coins), December 8 (19,660) and December 10 (2,320).

While scarce relative to other dates of this coin type, the 1802 is not rare in absolute numbers. It has been rated Rarity-3, a rather broad slot ranging from 201-500 coins known in all grades combined.
