Description & Analysis

The general availability of this issue belies its modest mintage. The 1849 silver dollar is easily found in all circulated grades and in the lower grades of Mint State. Choice examples may be had through MS 64, but the population drops offs rapidly above that level. Fewer than half a dozen gems have been certified. This date is also better struck as a rule than most of the preceding dates and makes for a nice type coin.

A single obverse die was paired with two reverses, one of them used previously for 1848's production. In the absence of any eye-catching features, these varieties are of interest solely to specialists. OC-1 is more common than OC-2, but no premium has emerged for the latter.

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.
