Description & Analysis

Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known by his pseudonym Mark Twain, was born in Florida, MO on November 30th, 1835. There are few American authors who have influenced the nation's culture more than Twain. Almost all of his books are still in print and have been translated into 75 languages. His books offer a window into the tumultuous period following the Civil War and show the vast economic inequalities of the Gilded Age.

In honor of Mark Twain's impact on the country and its culture, Congress authorized the minting of up to 100,000 gold $5 pieces and 500,000 silver dollars. The coins both feature Twain on the obverse, and have scenes from some of his most famous works on the reverse (and on the obverse as well on the silver dollars.)

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.
