The 1859 Liberty double eagle claims one of the lowest business-strike mintages of any Type One double eagle from the Philadelphia Mint, at a meager 43,597 pieces. There was little numismatic interest in double eagles at the time of issue, and the few 19th century collectors who did systematically collect the denomination preferred to update their holdings by purchasing proof examples from the Philadelphia Mint every year. The small business-strike production was largely ignored by contemporary numismatists and few high-quality pieces were preserved for posterity. The 1859 is an elusive issue in all grades today, and most survivors grade in the VF-XF range. This one is brighter and flashier in hand.
