Diameter: 21.6 millimeters
Weight: 129 grains Fineness: .900
Edge: Reeded Designer: Christian Gobrecht

1847-D
Mintage: 64,405

A very common Dahlonega half eagle. Most specimens are well struck and have luster that is frosty and above average. A few Prooflike pieces are known. Coloration is above average and ranges from green-gold to coppery orange-gold. Many examples of this date have above average eye appeal, but like so many gold coins struck at the Dahlonega Mint the surfaces are usually abraded because of circulation. Roughly 200 coins survive with less than 8% being Mint State.
