  • Description:

    The trend of having the same design used on all coinage, such as the dime, quarter, and half dollar, went until 1916, wherein the US Mint assigned different designs to all the denominational coins. The Seated Liberty design was the last of this trend and was featured on all coinage from 1838-1916. The Philadelphia, New Orleans, and San Francisco Mint participated in the production of the Seated Liberty Dime. The San Francisco Mint was established until 1854 so it joined in later on for the series. The Philadelphia Mint was the first mint to be commissioned in the US, as a means to put the new nation on the map for international commerce. The first mint facility was established by the original Founding Fathers and has had its hand in every successful coin series since!

    The 1838 Large Stars Seated Liberty Dime was minted by the Philadelphia Mint and contains larger stars, around Lady Liberty, on the obverse. The 1838 Large Stars Seated Liberty Dime has a moderate mintage and easily be found, especially in the lower grades. The 1838 Large Stars Seated Liberty Dime is in good condition with heavy wear and lacking in detailing on the main coin details. Dating back to the Roman Empire and perhaps, before, the Goddess of Liberty has been used in many cultures to celebrate the concept of liberty and freedom from oppressors. The goddess has been used on currency worldwide, especially in the US, and still is a nationwide icon. Normally, the goddess is depicted wearing a draped robe that loosely fits and her hands are usually occupied holding other significant symbols, such as olive branches, arrows, or a torch. For the US, the most prominent depiction stands in New York's harbor, a gift from the French in 1886.
