|United States One Dollar Coin
Congress authorized the first silver dollar on April 2, 1792. In
1795, silver coins, including the $1, were minted with the
so-called "Draped Bust" design of Ms. Liberty. The Draped Bust
coins did not have their denomination imprinted on the coins;
instead, the value of each coin was discernible by its size with
the $1 coin being the largest.
