The New Orleans Mint opened and began minting coins in 1838, after being established as a part of Andrew Jackson's westward push to expand the country. The NO Mint cranked out silver dollars beginning in 1846. Silver Liberty Seated Dollars were minted at this branch only for four years in 1846, 1850, 1859 and 1860. This coin was minted during the first year that the New Orleans Mint produced silver dollars. The total 1846 production of silver dollars at the New Orleans Mint was a tiny mintage of 59,000 coins.Compare that to the 13.32 million silver dollars produced at the high water mark for silver dollar production by the NOLA Mint in 1901.
