Description & Analysis

With a mintage of a mere 82,400 coins, the 1902 Liberty gold eagle has one of the lowest mintages of 20th century gold eagles. It seems the gold collectors of the day bought proofs, leaving the mint state issues to circulate. Few were saved, and most graded by NGC are in the MS61-MS62 range. Gem coins are almost unheard of.
