Coins of 1891 ~ Official Thread

The was the final year of the venerable Seated Liberty silver coins. The only denominations left were the dime, quarter, and half dollar. The half dime, 20c piece and dollar had been discontinued or replaced in the 1870's.

The New Orleans mint started producing minor silver coins again for the first time since 1861. The dime is common but the quarter is a top 20 key date with only 68,000 minted. Half dollar production wouldn't resume at New Orleans until 1892 when the new Liberty Head (Barber) designs were introduced.
