    Silver Dollars of Our Founding Fathers

    You might be surprised how affordable some of the earliest US silver dollars are.

    Silver Dollars were first authorized during the presidency of George Washington in 1792. The first coins were produced two years later in 1794, with only 1,758 coins leaving the fledgling Mint in Philadelphia.

    The History of Double Eagles In the late 1840s, the California Gold Rush brought about the need to mint a new, higher-denomination coin in the United States, as miners brought their gold to U.S. Assay Offices in the West. Until that time, the $10 gold piece, or eagle, was the highest denomination minted. As a result, in 1849, Congress approved the minting of a $20 gold piece, or double eagle, along with a new gold dollar coin.

  8. Indian Half Eagles 1908-1929

    Indian Half Eagles 1908-1929

    Collecting Indian Half Eagles 1908-1929

    This challenging series requires patience and money to complete a Mint State set.

    In our last article I discussed the very popular, Indian Quarter Eagle series. The Indian Quarter Eagle set consists of just fifteen coins, and can be completed with moderate effort and limited funds. This week I will start with a date by date analysis of the Indian Half Eagle series. The set has the same date range (1908–1929), but the coins were struck much more often at the branch mints. This creates a wonderful and challenging series. There are several very common dates in most grades, and there are a few dates that are nearly impossible to find in any grade. A complete, Mint State set is possible, but it will require much more patience and money to achieve compared to their quarter eagle counterparts. I hope the following information will be helpful for anyone undertaking the task.
