Description & Analysis

The silver dollars coined at the New Orleans Mint in 1850 were widely circulated, with a result that Mint State survivors are quite rare, gems unknown. Unlike Philadelphia Mint silver dollars of the 1850s, 1850-O is often found quite worn. As noted for 1846-O, southerners truly embraced the silver dollar and used it readily.

It's no surprise that just a single die pair was used for this production, which could have been completed in a single day. Unworn examples usually have semi-prooflike fields, but a few frosty coins are known, as well. The typical 1850-O dollar is better struck than most dates in this series and is a good candidate for one's type set.

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.
