Description & Analysis

The Carson City Mint struck 60,000 gold half eagles in 1893. Due to the fact that this was the last year of coinage production at the facility, examples of this issue have a special allure to collectors. Most examples of this coin tend to be in AU condition, but uncirculated examples are available through MS62. As the grade increases above MS62, this issue becomes harder and harder to find.
