June 4, 2018

     Heritage Auctions is once again offering an 1804 Dollar, featured in their upcoming Long Beach Signature Sale. The 1804 Dollar is considered by many as the world’s most famous coin and this one has not been available since it was last sold at auction in 2013 for nearly $3.9 million. This coin is certified by PCGS as PR62, the only Class II certified in this grade, and there are 3 in higher grades with PR68 being the highest. There are a total of 15 known 1804 Silver Dollars with 6 in museums and 9 held in private hands. The current Market price for this coin in PR62 is $3,150,000.

     There is a long list of declines this week for Ike Dollars. Lower demand and stagnant inventory is creating discounted sales. The 1971 in MS66 is down to $480 Market and the 1976 D TI in MS66 has dropped to $150.

     Susan B. Anthony Dollars are suffering from the same fate with several dates falling, from MS68 down to MS63. Even the better date Proofs are showing lower Market prices with the 1979 S TII in PR67 DCAM down to $55 and the 1981 S TII in PR68 DCAM lower at $92.
