Keeping track of the value of most is fairly easy because of the brisk trade in over-the-counter sales, auctions, and coin shows, which also help collectors determine the pricing of private transactions. Coin dealers rely heavily on the Guide Book of United States Coins, commonly called the Redbook, for their own retail pricing.

The Rarest Coin in the United States

Kenneth Goldman, a coin dealer and expert in rare coins, has served as president of Kenneth Goldman, Inc., since 1976. A highly regarded coin dealer and qualified appraiser of rare coins, he has used his expertise to assist both the New York Attorney General’s office and the Federal Trade Commission. Kenneth Goldman has also contributed to A Guidebook of United States coins for nearly four decades.

Coin collecting is a popular hobby practiced by as many as 10 million people in the United States alone. Collectors gather coins for a variety of reasons, and a collection that is valuable to one collector may hold little interest for another. However, there are a number of unique coins that any collector would love to possess. One such coin is the 1804 silver dollar, which many collectors believe to be the rarest, most valuable American coin ever minted. The story behind the coin is interesting, as no silver dollars were minted in 1804. About 15,000 dollars were authorized that year, but still ran with the 1803 print and could not be distinguished from the previous year’s batch.

In 1834, however, a select few 1804 silver dollars were minted in order to complete sets offered as gifts to foreign leaders. Additional coins were illegally minted around 1860. To date, less than 20 coins exist and recent sales for the legendary coin have been in the $2 to $3 Million Dollar range. Mr. Goldman owned one of these coins and is pleased to have his name included among the elite group of numismatists who have ever owned one of the 1804 Silver Dollars.

The History of Spanish Dollars in the Americas

Since 1971, Kenneth Goldman of Needham, MA, has served collectors around the world as an expert on rare coins, advancing the field of numismatics as a significant contributor to A Guidebook for United States Coins (the “Red Book”). As a highly experienced dealer and collector, Mr. Goldman offers expertise on pieces of eight used in the Americas.

A piece of eight (a “Spanish dollar”) was arguably the first global currency, minted in Spain’s imperial American colonies from roughly 1497 until the mid-1800s. Typically a round or ovoid piece of solid or almost solid silver, the piece of eight was efficiently designed for commerce and export to the European continent in the age of mercantilism. Worth eight Spanish reales, the royal currency of Spain at the time, a silver Spanish dollar coin was assayed and minted so that it could be physically cut or broken into eight slivers (“bits”) for payments, exchange, and making change. For centuries, the Spanish dollar was the only international currency accepted in certain countries such as China and the Philippines, and it was the most common currency for interstate and regional commerce in the United States until 1857, when the Coinage Act outlawed the use of foreign coins.

Mr. Goldman is available for consultation as well as expert appraisal for all types of United States and World coins. Having been an expert witness for the Federal Trade Commission as well as for the New York State Attorney General’s Office, he is well qualified in all fields.
