SILVER DOLLAR 2013 USA
Mint mark: If none can be found it is (Philadelphia Mint), but many have the mint marks D (Denver Mint – 1921 only), S (San fransisco Mint), O (New Orleans Mint).
Note: This George T. Morgan creation has become America’s most collected, famous, and abundant silver dollar. Coupled with the coin’s size, silver content, beautiful design and high mintages it’s no wonder it’s coin collectors most favorite coin.
Would you believe it if I told you there was once a 3-cent coin in U.S. circulation?
If you don’t, I hope you are sitting down. Yes, in the 19th century, the U.S. saw not only 3-cent coins, but also half-cent coins, 2-cent coins, and even a 20-cent piece!
These coins, which less than 15 years ago could be had for less than $50 each, are quickly becoming more and more expensive as more people are becoming intrigued with collecting these odd-denomination coins. And, as many people are finding out, odd-denomination coins are becoming scarcer and scarcer.
The United States has been producing coins designed to commemorate or honor special events, people, and places since the late 19th century.
Today, there are literally hundreds of different designs ranging from quarter-dollar coins all the way to gold denominations. The great array of topics featured on these commemorative coins is what makes them so exciting to collect.
Collectors interested in U.S. monuments may enjoy coins like the 1986 Statue of Liberty Centennial silver dollar. Those who appreciate black history would love an example of a Booker T. Washington Memorial half dollar, minted from 1946-1951. Sports enthusiasts may love any of the several Olympic-themed coins the U.S. Mint produced in 1983-1984, 1992, and 1996. This is just the tip of the commemorative iceberg. Look in a U.S. coin guide and see which commemoratives grab your attention. No doubt, you will find at least a few you may want to collect.
To some, collecting coins that are part of the 50 State Quarters series may seem like an obvious idea. Yet, many collectors overlook these quarters simply because they seem too commercial, and perhaps even too easy to collect since they are currently in circulation. However, if you consider just how exciting this series of coins (produced from 1999 through 2008) really is, you may be surprised that not every fan of U.S. coins collects these fascinating quarters.
Every states in the Union is represented on the quarters in this series, which celebrates the heritage, culture, and history of our beautiful country. With designs ranging from national monuments to our natural wonders to our wildlife to food (yes, even food), you will likely find yourself reveling in the awesome American grandeur that these circulating U.S. coins feature.
