    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 have dealt in coins and metals since the 80s. Had dealings with many dealers. Got scammed by a few. Chicago Gold is the only one I would recommend to my family or friends. Have your valuables appraised by them before you sell.

    I'll be back

    Cashed in some silver coins and received a very fair exchange. Joe and Chris, were very friendly, and comfortable to deal with. Came back with some jewelry, and received a rough appraisal...again no pressure.

    I would do business with them again

    I found the Chicago Gold Gallery to be a very honest and reputable shop. I would highly recommend this store to anyone buying and selling their possessions.
