United States rare and collectible coins historical and modern

The history of United States coinage is extensive and fascinating, and draws attention from a huge number of coin collectors both inside and outside the U.S., as does its northern neighbor Canada.

Early coins were frequently made of silver, and the vast majority of coins of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries issued for general circulation showed the allegorical figure of Liberty in various guises — with a draped bust, wearing a cap or Native American head dress, seated, walking, standing, et cetera. In the late nineteenth century and subsequently, American coins have honored notable figures and events in American history.
