Silver Dollar Coin Value

Search Silver Dollar Coin Value by Years

A silver dollar is a one-dollar coin that is made primarily of silver. It was first minted by the United States in 1794 and has been produced intermittently ever since, with several different designs over the years.

The most common design features a portrait of Lady Liberty on the front and an eagle on the back. Silver dollars were originally made of a mix of silver and copper, but in 1965 the composition was changed to include only copper and nickel.

However, some commemorative silver dollars have been minted in recent years that contain 90% silver. Silver dollars are popular among coin collectors and investors due to their historical significance and value as a precious metal.
