Why add this Silver 1875-CC Liberty Seated 20 Cent coin to your collection?

The Silver Liberty Seated Twenty Cent coin is one of the U.S. Mint's most short lived and most peculiar denomination series. The coin was struck for only four years in total, with just two of those years, 1875 and 1876, issued for public circulation. The series' short lifespan is a result of the coin's similarity to the quarter dollar and redundancy (two coins from the already established dime series would suffice). When discontinued, a significant amount of the twenty-cent pieces were melted.

  • This 1875 Silver Liberty Seated 20 Cent piece is a product of the Carson City Mint.
  • The coin's design is credited to William Barber, the Mint's 5th Chief Engraver from 1869-1879.
  • The coin is struck from 0.1447 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver.
  • The 22 mm diameter coin is minted with a smooth edge.
  • Final mintage is reported to be 133,290.
