Have you ever heard of a five million dollar dollar? If not, check this out: It’s a 1794 US silver dollar, a rarity form the famous Pogue collection. According to a recent CNN Money article, this coin is one of the few remaining from the country’s very first minting of dollars. It is believed that this special coin will fetch from $3 million to $5 million dollars when it is put up for auction in New York City on September 30,2015. CNN Money goes on to say that “There are only 150 of the coins known to exist, and this is one of the three best preserved; it’s the kind of thing coin connoisseurs dream about”.
The Famous Pogue Coin Collection
The Pogue Collection, a Texas property developer’s treasured collection of early American coins, could be one of the most singular coin collections in the world. This valuable collection has been gathered over more than 30 years by Texas property developer A. Mack Pogue and his son, D. Brent. It is considered one of the most valuable collection of early American coins, dating from the 1790s to the late 1830s, in private hands.
Your Silver Dollar Collection
Unless you are a very wealthy individual, super rare coins such as these are probably beyond your means. Other US Silver Dollars are less rare, more readily available, yet still make great numismatic pieces. The Morgan Dollar, produced from 1878 to 1904 and again in 1921, and the Peace Dollar, minted from 1921 to 1928 and from 1934 to 1935, are both gorgeous coins and can be had for very good prices.
