  • Description:

    The Seated Liberty Dime design reveals a soft-spoken warrior, seated as her picture is drawn. She holds a flag in one hand, while her other hand rests on the shield by her feet. There are 13 stars above her headed, honoring the original 13 colonies of the US. The reverse reveals solely the coin's denomination of one dime. The 1849 Seated Liberty Dime is in fine condition, exhibiting heavy wear on both sides of the coin. The 1849 Seated Liberty Dime contains no mint-mark, since it was produced at the country's first mint facility, the Philadelphia Mint. The 1849 Seated Liberty Dime has one of the lowest mintages of the series, with only 839,000 minted and becomes harder to find in the top grades.

    The Seated Liberty design was featured on the US silver coinage from 1837-1891, with each denomination exhibiting the same Goddess of Liberty design. 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. 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. For the US, the most prominent depiction stands in New York's harbor, a gift from the French in 1886. The Statue of Liberty stands tall, welcoming foreigners, near and far, to the country of liberty and justice.
