Description & Analysis

Though not a large mintage when compared to the production of half dollars during the 1840s, the figure for 1847 silver dollars is generous within this series. As a result, this issue is among the most often seen of the "No Motto" Seated Liberty Dollars. It's readily available in all circulated grades, and the number of Mint State pieces certified is higher than for all but a few dates of this type.

Two obverse dies were paired with four reverse dies, one of them used previously during 1846, for a combination of four die marriages. None of the dies bear interesting features, so there is extremely little demand for the particular varieties.

The 1847 dollar may be found well struck, but most reveal some weakness in the usual trouble spots. Semi-prooflike examples may be found with careful searching, but most were coined from moderately worn dies that produced textured luster.

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.
