|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.
