Flowing hair dollar


The Flowing Hair Dollar is the inaugural silver dollar coin issued by the United States Mint in 1794 and 1795. Designed by Chief Engraver Robert Scot, it features a bust of Liberty with flowing hair on the obverse and an eagle perched on a rock surrounded by a wreath on the reverse.

Comprising 90% silver and 10% copper, the coin weighs approximately 26.96 grams. With low mintages—1,758 in 1794 and 160,295 in 1795—the Flowing Hair Dollar is a rare and historically significant coin, representing the early days of American coinage.
