1827 QUARTER EAGLE - 1827 QUARTER EAGLE CAPPED HEAD TO LEFT
1827 Quarter Eagle
1827 Quarter Eagle - The 1827 quarter eagle had an original mintage of 2,800. It is the second rarest date of the series and the last large diameter quarter eagle to be issued. During the years following the coin’s issue, the price of gold fluctuated. When it rose past the coin’s melt value, they were withdrawn from circulation. Often the gold was sold back to the Philadelphia Mint and the process was repeated. Until the gold content of these coins was reduced in 1834, they continued to be melted for bullion. Those coins that survived did so by chance. Very few specimens exist today with only 40 to 60 known.

The coins of this date are usually flatly struck on Liberty’s head. Choice pieces are extremely rare. The stars are much larger than on the coins of the first three years of this design.

While no proof coins are known for this date, researchers believe that a few may have been struck.
