Description & Analysis

Despite its lower than usual mintage, the 1851 Philadelphia Mint half dime is readily available across all grades. It is disproportionately common in Mint State due to the hoarding of silver coins at a time when they were worth more than their equivalent face value in gold coins. These hoards were often forgotten until discovered decades later, at which time the coins already had collector value.
