History

The Flowing Hair Dollar is the first silver dollar of the United States. It was minted in the second year of the United States Mint's operation. The coin only lasted two years and had a series mintage of about 162,000 coins. It was replaced in mid-1795 by the Bust Dollar.

Like many early coins of the United States Mint, the Flowing Hair Dollar has many varieties.

In modern times, these dollars have become very collectible, and collectors will pay great premiums for high-grade examples.
