What was the last year for Silver Dollars
Silver has been used for coinage since ancient times when the Lydian empire, under King Croesus, became the first to separate silver from the electrum in about 560 BC. Separating the silver gave the advantage of a more definite intrinsic value of the underlying metal & the coinage itself.
The United States began minting silver dollar coins at the direction of Alexander Hamilton who basically modeled the coin based on the Spanish 8 Reals. Even though they were less pure consisting of 90% silver and 10% copper coins, like the Morgan Silver Dollar and the Peace Silver Dollar quickly became very popular.
Other popular types of silver dollars include the 1794 Flowing Hair silver dollars, the Draped Busts, and the Seated Liberty coins. Last year of issue 1935 precious metals like silver in coins began to diminish as because the silver content became more valuable than their actual face value.
