The Seated Liberty dollar was a one-dollar coin struck by the United States Mint from 1840 to 1873 and designed by its chief engraver, Christian Gobrecht. It was the last Silver coin of that denomination to be struck before passage of the Coinage Act of 1873, which temporarily ended production of the Silver dollar for American commerce. The coin's obverse is based on that of the Gobrecht dollar, which had been minted experimentally from 1836 to 1839. However, the soaring eagle used on the reverse of the Gobrecht dollar was not used; instead, the United States Mint placed a heraldic eagle, based on a design by late Mint Chief Engraver John Reich first used on coins in 1807.
