Description & Analysis

After their first run of five and ten-dollar coins in 1852, Wass, Molitor and Co. halted their production of coinage with the hopes that the San Francisco Mint would finally begin striking the amount of gold coinage required for commerce. Unfortunately, this was not the case. In fact, due to a lack of necessary assaying supplies, the mint closed its doors in 1855.

This closure once again put strain on the few gold coins currently in circulation,and local bankers convinced Wass and Molitor to begin striking coins again. While no further five-dollar pieces were struck, ten, twenty, and fifty dollar coins were issued.

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.
