U.S. One Dollar Coins

The mint act of April 2, 1792 established the United States mint and the "dollar" as our unit of currency. It dictated that the dollar should be made of silver and weigh 416 grains. Dollar coins in the United States experienced different degrees of popularity at different times. The United States Treasury Department suspended silver dollar production in 1835 and for the next 30 years not a single silver dollar was minted. The Morgan silver dollar is the most collected silver dollar that the United States ever produced. Information on all U.S. dollars can be found in the pages listed below.
