1853 SEATED LIBERTY ARROWS & RAYS TRIBUTE – 2 TROY OUNCE – 39MM
Due to an imbalance in the price of silver and gold, a Coinage Act was passed by the U.S. Congress in 1853 that resulted in a reduction of weight for the Half Dime, Dime, Quarter and Half. To make the change obvious, rays were placed on the reverse of each coin, and arrowheads on either side of the date on the obverse.
- Contains 2 oz. Troy of .999 Fine Silver
- Obverse: Liberty seated on a rock, surrounded by thirteen stars and holding the Union shield along with a pole topped by a Liberty cap.
- Reverse: The inscription UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and TWO TROY OUNCES, encircling an eagle clutching arrows and branches, with hallmark at 6:00 o’clock.
