Silver Dollar Coin
dollar coin has been produced in the United States almost since the beginning
of this nation. Production began on the first silver dollar coin, the "Flowing
Hair" dollar in 1794 and since then has seen quite a few makeovers. Next in
line of the silver dollar coin series in the U.S. is the "Draped Bust" dollar.
With two types of reverses, the Draped Bust silver dollar coin, as well as the
Flowing Hair silver dollar coin, are two of the most sought after United States
coins in all of numismatics.
Draped Bust silver dollar coin is one of the rarest and most valuable coins
in the world today. The United States then discontinued production of the silver
dollar coin until the Gobrecht silver dollar coin brought the series back into
production in the 1830's. Although this variety of the silver dollar coin was
in production for just a few years, it rekindled merchants interest in the ease
and efficiency of using the silver dollar coin for transactions of the day.
The "Seated Liberty" silver dollar coin followed the Gobrecht silver dollar
coin and became a staple to business and investment practices for several decades
in the 19th century. After congress neglected to pass legislation required to
keep up production of the Seated Liberty silver dollar coin, the "Trade Dollar"
silver dollar came into production and was mainly used overseas to facilitate
trade and assert U.S. influence in Asia and other Pacific and Indian ocean areas
as many nations in this region of the world were emerging as powerful trade
partners to the United States.
A few short
years after the Seated Liberty silver dollar coin was discontinued, congress
passed legislation enabling mints to begin production on the "Morgan" silver
dollar coin, thus providing a stable source of coinage to help in the expansion
of the western United States. The Morgan silver dollar coin, after being produced
for a time period spanning close to 50 years, gave way to the final business
strike type of silver dollar coin the the United States would release to the
public. The "Peace" silver dollar coin lasted for just 14 years in production,
but made quite an impact on the coin collecting world for decades to come. The
silver dollar coin of the United States has now become a staple in every coin
collection and is still sought after by professional numismatists and novice
coin collectors the world over.
