Description & Analysis

The silver issues from the San Francisco Mint in 1901 are all noted rarities in their series. However, the gold issues of this year are all far more common. The double eagle of this year had a mintage of nearly 1.6 million coins. While this issue is worth essentially common-date money below mint state, the number of survivors drops sharply at MS63, making this date harder to come by than most, In fact, NGC has only graded four coins of this date in gem.
