Early Silver Dollars (1794 - 1804) (Certified)
Early Silver Dollars - APMEX offers a superb selection of certified Early Silver Dollars.
Early Silver Dollars were minted to replace the Spanish Eight Reales and Spanish Milled Dollar coins that were freely circulating in the newly-formed United States. These large, heavy silver coins were in great demand in the early days of our nation and supply could barely match the demand. Early Silver Dollars comprise Flowing Hair, Draped Bust (Small Eagle) and Draped Bust (Heraldic Eagle) types.
The Early Dollars category has the distinction of including two of the rarest United States coins ever minted - the 1794 Flowing Hair Silver Dollar and the 1804 Silver Dollar. The first struck 1794 Silver Dollar is currently valued at $10 million dollars, while all 1804 Silver Dollars are rare and are generally worth over $1 million dollars each. However, you can add examples of Bust Dollars to your collection for generally less than $5,000.00. These 18th and early 19th century silver coins are always some of the most popular of all numismatic collectibles.
