Description & Analysis

From September 13-14, 1814, the British Navy bombarded Fort McHenry in Chesapeake Bay while trying to take the city of Baltimore. By the morning of the 14th, the battle was over and American troops raised a giant 30x42 foot flag which signaled an American victory in the defense of the city. American lawyer and author Francis Scott Key witnessed these events from a ship in the harbor, and wrote a poem "Defence of Fort M'Henry" which we now know better as the "Star-Spangled Banner." In honor of the bicentennial of these events, Congress authorized the minting of up to 500,000 silver dollars and 100,000 $5 gold pieces. Surcharges of $10 and $35 were added to each silver and gold piece, respectively. These fees were donated to the Maryland War of 1812 Bicentennial Commission to help them with outreach programs and the upkeep of historical monuments.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
