|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.
