U.S. Silver Dollars and Clad Dollars
Minted 1794 to date
Struck in silver through 1935, with occasional silver issues after that date
Early American Silver Dollars: These earliest dollars are some of the scarcest of all U.S. series. From the Flowing Hair and Bust Dollars of the 18th Century to the Seated Liberty Dollars and Trade Dollars, these are most desirable and a proud addition to any collection. Most of the early dollars were melted in the 19th and early 20th, making these far more difficult to locate than mintages might indicate.
Morgan Dollars: The Morgan silver dollar, first issued in 1878, is arguably the most popular of all American coins. It has so much going for it: it is a large silver coin, it has a great number of varieties, it has a long history, and it was struck at so many mints (Philadelphia, Carson City, Denver, New Orleans and San Francisco). Minting was suspended after the 1904 issue, and resumed for one year only ... 1921. In this final year, Morgan Dollars were struck at the Denver mint for the first time for the series.
Peace Dollars: This is the first U.S. coin issued to celebrate peace, specifically the end of the Great War, or as we know it today, WWI. The series was minted from 1921 to 1935, with many coins struck in very small quantities. Minting ended during the Great Depression, when demand for large coins ceased. This 24-coin series is a joy to complete.
Eisenhower or -Ike- Dollars: There are 32 different issues in the Ike Dollar series, minted from 1971 through 1978, making this an affordable and obtainable set to complete. In addition to the coins issued for general circulation, several years were also struck in BU and Proof silver, including 1971, 1972, 1973, 1974 and the Bicentennial year of 1976. There are enough varieties in this coin series to make it interesting yet challenging.
SBA or Susan B. Anthony Dollars: Issued in 1979, this One Dollar coin was issued in honor of Susan B. Anthony, the American woman who fought tirelessly for women's rights. Coins were struck from 1979 to 1981, and again in 1999. There are scarce Type 2 varieties, in both 1979 and 1981. The U.S. Treasury hoped this coin would be used instead of the $1.00 U.S. note, but this will not happen until our government removes the $1.00 note from circulation.
Sacagawea and Native American Golden Dollars: Here is another American coin celebrating the American Indian. Had the teenage Indian girl, Sacagawea, not recognized a particular mountain formation as she accompanied Lewis and Clark across the west in 1803, the expedition would likely have ended in complete failure. These golden dollar coins have been struck from 1999 to date.
Presidential Dollars: This latest series commemorates 4 different Presidents each year, beginning with our first president, George Washington, with coins first issued in 2007 and continue to be issued. The series will continue until all of our presidents have been depicted on one of the coins of this Golden Dollar series. Don't miss a single issue. These are gorgeous!
