For a second year, total production of the silver dollar remained extremely low. The 1852 Seated Liberty Dollar had a mintage of just 1,100 coins, representing a decline of 200 from the previous year. Although offerings remain very rare, this date is slightly more available than the higher mintage 1851 silver dollar.
Both originals and restrikes of the 1852 Seated Liberty Dollar exist. The originals were struck for circulation and in proof, although the latter are exceedingly rare. All of the restrikes were proofs.
Recent auction prices realized include an original circulation strike graded NGC MS 63, which sold for $54,625 in 2005, an original proof graded NGC PF 65 Cameo, which sold for $57,500 in 2009; and a proof restrike, which sold for $46,000 in 2008.
