Touted as America's first silver dollar, the 8 Reale — of Spanish origin, but circulated in America before the U.S. struck its own currency in mass quantities — represents one of the most commonly exchanged coins of the post-Revolutionary era. This coin helped fuel the early years of an infant nation, aiding in the payment to heroic soldiers and retaining its popularity well into the 1800s.
Take advantage of the rare opportunity to own a genuine collectible from the Revolutionary War period! Still exhibiting the fine detailing after more than two centuries, this 1775-1787 8 Reale silver dollar arrives in lightly-circulated condition and displays the classic banner-draped pillar design, a precursor to the U.S. dollar symbol. 1½" diameter.
