1800 $5 NGC MS 60 Struck during the Presidency of Thomas Jefferson
Service: NGC | Rating: MS60
According to auction records of the past decade, this is one of the most common dates of the type, just edging out dates such as 1802 and 1803. Circulated examples are relatively easy to locate up to AU-58. Even Mint State examples are somewhat plentiful, making this one of the most affordable early U.S. gold coins in top condition. Several MS-64 examples have been certified, but none have reached a higher certification. Out of the nearly 200 auction appearances since 1994, only five MS-64 coins have sold at auction. In 2005, a raw gem sold for $241,500, greatly exceeding the previous price record. The reports of Proof examples of this date appear to have been wishful thinking
Due to market volatility, prices and availiability on coins are subject to change.
