On this page, you’ll find a selection of American Coins put together especially for US Coin Collectors and World Coin Collectors.
But why buy and collect American Coins?
For a country not yet over 250 years old, the US certainly has seen its share of important historical events that shaped the country as a nation and influenced the course of world history.
The Americans started minting coins in 1792, and since the country became independent from the British Empire it has had 45 presidents. Originally, American presidents weren’t featured on coins. However, 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. That means that there are now more than enough Presidents to start a ‘Presidents of the United States Coin Collection’.
But that’s not all folks! US coins also have plenty of interesting iconographies. 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 if you like conspiracy theories, word has it that US money contains secret signs from the Freemasonry and/or the Illuminati. The 1792 half-dime, for example, one of the first American coins ever struck, had The Eye of Providence on its obverse: a symbol often linked to Freemasonry.
Last but not least, if you like westerns have a look at our selection of Morgan Silver Dollars. This was the coin used in the old west day in day out. Plus, its name comes from its British engraver: George T. Morgan. The Americans brought him over from the UK especially to help them mint beautiful coins.

Harry S. Truman Set of 8 dollars milled edge. Let’s start off by saying these President Harry S. Truman ‘Dollars’ were made by ICB and have nothing to do with the United States Government and they have no face value. Perhaps they will make people in the States think, but they are a private issue. Harry S. Truman was the 33rd President of the United States, he took over when Franklin D. Roosevelt died in office. He was responsible for the end of World War II. Europe was capitulating when he took office, but the Far East had a long way to go. He dropped the Atom bombs on Japan, to save hundreds of thousands of lives that would have been lost invading Japan. He set up the Marshall Plan to help rebuild Western Europe, he broke down the racial barriers in the military and in the government. When he left office he refused to go on any corporate payroll, despite not having a Presidential pension. These pattern ‘Dollars’ show Truman on one side with the date 1973 and the Number of each piece out of a total of 50 made is etched into the coin. The reverse shows the White House with the Truman balcony and the American Bald Eagle with a ‘1’. Only 50 were struck with the plain edge and 50 with the milled edge, We are offering both types. There are 8 pieces in each set, Sterling Silver, Goldine, Bronze, Aluminium, Pewter, Cupronickel, Copper and Steel. I bought most of the mintage, all 8 pieces are etched with your unique matching number, out of the total mintage of just 50 sets. They are full crownsized and in Proof condition.
