Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88): The 1894 is one of the more common dates of the series. It is similar in rarity to the 1896 and 1897 and more rare than the 1895, 1899 and the much lower mintage 1901. The 1894 is readily obtainable in high circulated grades as well as Unc-60. Choice uncs are available quite often but in gem condition the 1894 is very scarce, as are nearly all Liberty Head Double Eagles, even the common dates.
