USA Coin Book

If you encounter one of these rarities, you might want to hold onto it. The Bowed Liberty Dollar is said to be worth millions, assuming you’re looking at the real thing. Often known among collectors as “the king of American coins,�? only 15 are believed to exist. Unsurprisingly, their true value and scarcity have made them a popular coin for counterfeiters to reproduce.

This one-of-a-kind coin is stamped “1804,” but none were made that year. All liberty dollars were minted in the 1830s or beyond. Their average value is estimated between $10,000 to $20,000. With that said, serious collectors have been willing to pay even bigger bucks for those in minted condition. During the late 1990s, one impressive specimen sold for over $4 million.
