Collectors Club Submit Coins Price Guide Set Registry® PCGS CoinFacts
From Don's Desk

Auction results are a valuable source of information. We can use Auction Prices Realized (APR) to better understand how the market values coins in the same grade. We often see significant swings in prices realized for different examples of the same coin in the same grade. A closer examination of auction prices realized can help us understand why this happens.

PCGS CoinFacts – N England Shilling (Regular Strike)

Not much larger than a U.S. Quarter Dollar, the New England Shilling is one of the rarest and most valuable of all Colonial U.S. coins. First made in 1652, these silver coins were struck in defiance of the British. With a short production and low mintage, it’s incredibly rare to see a New England Shilling on the market.

Get detailed coin information, pricing, population reporting, auction prices realized, rarity and survival estimates and condition census on N England Shilling with a free trial to PCGS CoinFacts.
