Coveted Bust Silver Dollars
To be perfectly frank, the most coveted Bust Silver Dollar is every Bust Silver Dollar. The confluence of these coins being so old, having been produced in such limited quantities and being incredibly difficult to find today makes each individual coin enormously precious. The 1794 Bust Silver Dollar, the first such coin produced, is by far the most sought-after version of this coin. They are essentially impossible to find and will run to five figures even in extremely poor condition.
A basic tenet of collecting is the older the coin, the rarer and more desirable it will be. As the mintage years on Bust Dollars transition from the 1790s to the early 1800s, the average price of the coin decreases noticeably. Regardless of year, however, Uncirculated and Extremely Fine varieties of Bust Silver Dollars command premiums over $10,000. Possession of a Bust Silver Dollar is typically limited to extremely serious collectors who have the ability to dedicate great resources to building their collection.
