Product Details

In October 1865, as the US Civil War aftermath lingered, the nation sought to reunite. The S.S. Republic steamer, en route from New York to New Orleans, carrying gold and silver coins, sank in a storm. The 1858-O Seated Liberty Silver Half Dollars from this shipwreck are now available on BullionMax with NGC certification.

The Seated Liberty Half Dollar, produced from 1836 to 1891, adorned various denominations. The 1858 Seated Liberty Half Dollar, part of a $400,000 cargo on the S.S. Republic, symbolizes the US Mint’s resurgence post-Civil War.

On the obverse of the 1858-O Silver Seated Liberty Half Dollar, Liberty sits on a rock, holding a staff with a Phrygian cap. This image was created in 1836 by Christian Gobrecht and is one of the first widely-used depictions of Liberty across various denominations of American currency.

The reverse of the 1858 Seated Liberty Half Dollar displays a heraldic eagle with the US national shield, arrows of war, and an olive branch. An O mint mark is beneath the eagle’s talons.

These 1858-O Seated Liberty Silver Half Dollars are certified by NGC, confirming their origin from the S.S. Republic wreck discovered in 2003, with 51,000 coins recovered.
