Product Description

Have you ever heard of the American “trime”? If you answered ‘no’, you are probably not alone as most Americans would not recognise this curious silver coin. First minted over 160 years ago in 1851, it was the smallest U.S. silver coin ever minted. In 1873, after slightly more than two decades, production of the silver three-cent piece ceased forever. As a result, few people know this coin exists, and even fewer have been fortunate enough to own one.

Just like the “trime,” any one of these silver coins would be difficult to find in collectable condition. This collection by Danbury Mint includes many sought-after coins from the early days of America’s history: Spanish milled coins, which were legal tender in the U.S. until 1857; Capped Bust coins, some of the earliest struck by the U.S. Mint, starting in 1807; and Seated Liberty coins, first minted before the American Civil War and in much smaller quantities than modern U.S. coinage.

This collection of 15 coveted silver coins:

    • Is a stunning retrospective of America’s history that spans the 18th and 19th centuries, from America’s earliest days to the Civil War and the Wild West era.
    • Features long-out-of-circulation, obsolete legal-tender coins, each with an exceptionally high silver content, and the oldest minted as far back as the 1770s.
    • Is presented in gently circulated condition, each coin protectively encapsulated in a crystal-clear holder so you can easily appreciate the design details on both sides.

Included at no additional charge: An elegant Display Chest, measuring 9″ x 8.8″ x 3″, which will be sent with your third shipment, together with an Information Booklet providing a fascinating overview of each coin.

Coins are shipped bi-monthly one at a time, until your collection is complete (Price subject to possible adjustment, but only due to unusual market conditions).
