  • Description:

    The 1845 Seated Liberty Dime contains a low mintage of just over 1.7 million minted. Considered to be in fine condition, the 1845 Seated Liberty Dime has suffered heavy wear on both sides, with primary details lacking. Minted by the Philadelphia Mint, the 1845 Seated Liberty Dime carries no mint-mark. The Philadelphia Mint is almost as old as the US, being established in 1792 by the Founding Fathers. It still stands today, offering the best coin series the US has to offer! The 1845 Seated Liberty Dime shares the date with some important events in the US. The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe was published, Congress approves the annexation of Texas, and Florida becomes the 27th state in the US.

    The Seated Liberty design was used on all coinage, such as the dime, quarter, and half dollar. This was the trend until 1916, wherein the US Mint assigned different designs to all the denominational coins. On the obverse, the same Seated Liberty portrait is depicted, including 13 stars surrounding the goddess, honoring the original 13 colonies. Due to the size of the coins, in the series, the reverse design will be different. The Seated Liberty Dime reverse only contains the coin's denomination value and is encircled by the infamous Grecian leaves. 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.
