    Although the Red Book and major, population reports all agree that there were NO, 1917, proof, Buffalo Nickels minted at the Philadelphia Mint, a few sources say that a few, “specimen” coins WERE created for presentation peices to selected, government officials (President Wilson being one?)

    Despite owners’ attempts to have these coins verified as proof coins, the consensus of opininion by grading experts over the years has resulted in “rejection” as genuine proofs. Do you know how many were made, to whom they were distributed and are there any sales records of auctions that put them up for bidding? It would also be welcomed information if there was a source that outlines the conditions under which these “specimen” coins were struck. Can you help?

    Great article; my favorite coin on the list is number 4, the 1804 Ten Dollar Gold Piece.

    THE 1849 20 DOLLAR GOLD PIECE IS NOT EVEN A PATTERN COIN OR WAS IT EVER US CURRENCY SO IT IS NOT IN THE TOP TEN COINS OF HIGHEST VALUE HOWEVER I USE TO THINK SO AS WELL THE 1933 SAINT WAS NOT US CURRENCY SO IT TOO IS DISQUALIFIED AND THE POPULATION IS NOT AUTHENTIC IT WAS ARTIFICIALY TAMPERED WITH IT TO IS OVER PRICED AS FOR THE 1913 V NICKEL IT IS NOT RARE EVEN THOUGH THERE ARE ONLY 5 KNOWN OUT OF HOW MANY ORIGINALY MADE IF THE NUMBER IS SMALL THIS COIN TOO IS OVERR PRICED BY 1000 S OF DOLLARS I HAVE BEEN A COIN COLLECTOR FOR A GREAT LONG TIME SO KEEP IN TOUCH

    The 1794 silver dollar while quite rare and with A couple exceptional specimens known still has about 150 examples known to exist and can be had… For a price I agree also about the 1849 $20 not being for circulation all these are great and rare coins but I think this list should have the 1822 $5 with 3 extant and only one in private hands and the 1870 s half dime another unique coin and again privately held

    Hi. I want to inform you that my friend in my native country has some of these valuable coins. For example, he has two of those 1804 liberty which is worth 47 million dollars each as written in this website. So, after reading this information, I became so curious about it and want to know more information about those 1804 liberty coins. I also can show you pictures of it if you want to. I want to make sure that those coins are original so what should my friend in my native country do in order to make sure it is the real one. Thank you please email me back.

    Sir,
    Why not a “2nd Top Ten Most Valuable American Coins” for wider scope …?

    Love the list. There are a bunch of coins on here I’ve never heard of, like the $3 gold coin. I love the story of the Liberty Head Nickel because the guy who minted them, Samuel Brown, also owned them all at one point. Seems like he minted them and kept them so he could sell them as collector items. I bet he had no idea they’d be worth so much 100 years later!
