On this page, you’ll find a selection of American Coins put together especially for US Coin Collectors and World Coin Collectors.
For a country not yet over 250 years old, the US certainly has seen its share of important historical events that shaped the country as a nation and influenced the course of world history.
The Americans started minting coins in 1792, and since the country became independent from the British Empire it has had 45 presidents. Originally, American presidents weren’t featured on coins. However, this changed 1909 when Lincoln became the first president featured on a circulating coin. From Abraham Lincoln to Donald J. Trump there are now plenty of coins featuring the portrait of an American president. That means that there are now more than enough Presidents to start a ‘Presidents of the United States Coin Collection’.
But that’s not all folks! US coins also have plenty of interesting iconographies. You’ll often find the symbols that we all associate with the United States, such as the Statue of Liberty and the Bald Eagle on coins. And if you like conspiracy theories, word has it that US money contains secret signs from the Freemasonry and/or the Illuminati. The 1792 half-dime, for example, one of the first American coins ever struck, had The Eye of Providence on its obverse: a symbol often linked to Freemasonry.
Last but not least, if you like westerns have a look at our selection of Morgan Silver Dollars. This was the coin used in the old west day in day out. Plus, its name comes from its British engraver: George T. Morgan. The Americans brought him over from the UK especially to help them mint beautiful coins.
