This coin was only minted for 4 years and only 7 different issues exist. The first year of issue was 1875 and Philadelphia produced 38,500 pieces. Carson City produced 133,290 pieces and San Francisco produced 1,155,000 pieces. The following year, 1876, 14,750 pieces were produced at Philadelphia with another 1,150 coins in proof. Carson City only produced 10,000 coins with the majority of those coins never being released to the public. Most of them were melted at the Mint and it is believed that most of the Philadelphia coins were also melted. The following two years, 1877 and 1878 just over 1100 pieces were minted in proof only. In these two years no pieces were made for general circulation. The demise of the $.20 piece it is believed to be the public was confused due to similarity to the quarter. The corner itself was a very well established foundation of American commerce. The $.20 piece was really nothing more than a substitute for two dimes. Only one design was minted and that was the Liberty Seated design. This is the second twenty cent coin in my collection, an 1875-CC.
