American Coins

On this page, you’ll find a selection of American Coins put together especially for American Coin Collectors and World Coin Collectors.

For a country not yet over 250 years old, the United States certainly has seen its share of important historical events that not only have shaped the country and its people but have also heavily influenced the history of the world.

But why buy and collect American Coins?

The USA started minting coins in 1792, and since it became independent from the British Empire has had 45 presidents. Although originally, American presidents weren’t featured on coins, this changed 1909 when Lincoln became the first president featured on a circulating coin. From Abraham Lincoln to Donald J. Trump there are now plenty of coins featuring the portrait of an American president for those of you who want to start a ‘Presidents of the United States Collection’.        

But that’s not all folks! US coins also have plenty of interesting iconography, and you’ll often find the symbols that we all associate with the United States, such as the Statue of Liberty and the Bald Eagle on coins and banknotes. And for those of you who like to indulge in conspiracy theories, it has long been speculated that U.S. money contains secret signs from the Freemasonary and/or the Illuminati. The 1792 half-dime, for example, one of the first American coins ever to be struck, featured The Eye of Providence on its obverse: a symbol that many associate with Freemasonary, although it is originally a Christian symbol.

United States of America, Standing Liberty Quarter Dollar Various Dates Silver Fine

In 1916 the United States Mint changed over from the Barber Quarter to the Liberty Standing Quarter. Unfortunately the designer used a more European model of Liberty with one of her breasts exposed. It caused a scandal and uproar. After all, you couldn’t have bare breasts being shown on your coins. After all, no one had ever seen a bare breast, unless they were feeding their child or you had seen classical sculpture or painting or you had … So in 1917 this design was changed and the offending breast was covered up. The Standing Liberty Quarter was issued until 1930. All of our coins are of the non offending kind, mainly because they are better value. All coins are in Fine condition and it is one of America’s most beautiful silver coins. Dates will be of our choice, but all coins are nice examples in Fine condition and struck in .900 fine Silver.
