Item Description:
In the third edition of The Top 100 Greatest U.S. Coins, the 1776 Continental Dollars ranked 10th. A fascinating issue as the origin of these coins is not clear, except that it was likely rooted in the desire of the Continental Congress to issue a monetary medium of exchange. Issued in 1776, most of these examples were made of pewter as silver was not affordable to the fledgling government. Likely struck in three different cities, New York, Philadelphia, or Lancaster, PA, these are very popular due to their association with early America and the Revolutionary War.
