Description & Analysis

Nearly all of the 9,000 examples originally coined immediately entered circulation, and higher grade examples are very scarce. This is the only No Motto half eagle dated 1866, the final year of this design type. Later in the year, the San Francisco Mint produced an additional quantity of 34,920 half eagles from the new dies with the Motto IN GOD WE TRUST
