DRAPED BUST, LARGE EAGLE REVERSE HALF DOLLAR (1801-1807)

1802 Half Dollar

1802 Half Dollar

1802 Half Dollar - The 1802 Half Dollar is a difficult coin to find, especially in XF condition or finer. For years, and maybe for generations, collectors felt that they could by a coin of this date anytime one was needed. Maybe that was true a long time ago but not anymore. Most collector coins remain in “strong hands,” that is, in collections for many years and seldom become available on the market. Even impaired specimens attract bidders’ attention at auctions.

With a mintage of 29,890, the 1802 Half Dollar has the lowest mintage of the Draped Bust, Large Eagle series. NGC has certified 88 coins in all conditions, and PCGS has 183. These numbers do not account for crossovers or resubmissions.
