About Twenty Cent Piece [Type] 20-Cent Pieces

The 20 cent coin, also known as a "double dime" by some numismatists, was produced from 1875 through 1878 and was designed by William Barber. The coin proved unpopular and became one of the shortest-lived of all coin series, but for type enthusiasts the 20 cent coin offers a host of numismatic and financial challenges.

The indisputable series key is the 1876-CC, which had a mintage of only 10,000 -- most of which were melted. Today the 1876-CC 20 cent coin less than 20 survivors in all grades, according to Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS). In large part due to the scarcity of the 1876-CC, relatively few collectors ever even attempt -- let alone complete -- a date-and-mintmark collection of twenty cent pieces.

Indeed, much of the sales activity for this denomination is from type collectors who pursue perhaps just one specimen for their collections. Most commonly the issue many collectors purchase is the 1875-S, which is the most common example and is relatively affordable throughout most of the circulated grades and available in the MS grades. The other issues in this series are much scarcer than the 1875-S and are much more challenging even in the lower circulated grades.

About CDN Prices

All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.

CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.

Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.

Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.

CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.

Price movement is indicated for price changes in the last 30 days.

The values listed are only indications. CDN Publishing, LLC does not buy or sell collectibles. Users are strongly encouraged to seek multiple sources of pricing before making a final determination of value. CDN Publishing is not responsible for typographical or database-related errors. Your use of this site indicates full acceptance of these terms.
