Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: As would be expected from its low mintage, the 1913 Double Eagle is very scarce in most grades. In 1913 the world was very close to war and mintages decreased as gold stopped flowing over international borders. Most examples seen of the date are heavily bag marked. The date is also one of the few issues that is seen quite often in circulated condition. Obviously, not very many were saved by collectors. Very few have been graded at even the MS 65 level. NGC has graded 17 as MS 65, the last coin having sold for $34,500 at auction in 2009. Only one example has been certified as MS 66. Unfortunately, the coin has not appeared at auction or been seen in recent years. It would bring a block buster price if offered.

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.
