1804 dollar FRONT

 

 

 

1804 dollar BACK

 

 

 

 

 

An original 1804 silver dollar sold last month at auction in Rosemont, Illinois for $3,877,500. This group of coins has been named the “King of United States coinage” – a fitting name considering it was meant to serve as a diplomatic gift to foreign royals.

The 1804 dollar coins were made on behalf of President Andrew Jackson and presented to certain rulers of Asia, such as the King of Siam, Emperors of Cochin-China and Japan, and the Sultan of Muscat, in exchange for trade advantages.

Despite the name, the coins were actually minted in 1834. Mint records indicated 1804 as the last year of production for silver dollars, but none were located with that date. The State Department then decided to mint new silver dollars with the 1804 date featured.

This particular coin was part of the Class I variety, of which there are only eight known in existence. The front of the coin depicts Miss Liberty, and the back has an eagle and 13 starts to represent the 13 original colonies.

Customer Testimonial

Had a Great Experience

"I recently worked with Chicago Gold Gallery to design an engagement ring. From picking out the stone to designing the setting, it was a wonderful experience to say the least. Thank you so much for your help!"

Can't say enough about this place.

Recently took my family of 4 for a week to Chicago for a family vacation. We were on a limited budget but being lifelong Cub fans I thought it would be a great treat for my kids ages 7 and 10 to go to a game that we hadn't planned for...

Love this place!

Chrissy & Joe are all super friendly and easy to work with. I trust them and they will do whatever they can to help you including giving you advice on what you have or what you should look for. I won't ever go anywhere else and I've recommended it to several friends.

I would do business with them again

I had a diamond ring that I wanted to sell and they gave me top dollar for it. They were so nice and I would do business with them again.

Don't Hesitate to call...

I find that Joe at Chicago Gold Gallery consistently offers and pays more for my coins than coin dealers in Chicagoland. He's very nice and easy to deal with. Don't hesitate to call him and preferably visit him.
