The American Silver Eagle is a coin worth one dollar. It is an official bullion coin, meaning it is stored for its value and not traded in regular commerce. The coin is 99.9% silver, with an image of Walking Liberty on one face and the titular eagle on the other.

The 1900 Morgan Silver Dollar features the Statue of Liberty on one side, and an eagle on the other. Online collectors are buying Morgan Silver Dollars for around 100 to 300 dollars, depending on quality.

You have one troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver. Current value about $16. BUT I GUESS THIS IS NOT SILVER If the word PEACE is under the eagle, you have a standard-issue dollar coin made of 90% silver. Its value is around $16 depending on the price of silver.

The 1922 is probably a peace dollar. It would have the word peace on the side with the eagle. The 1921 is probably a Morgan dollar. It has a Liberty head on one side and an eagle on the other. These are worth about $25-35 on average.

That's NOT the Statue of Liberty, because the statue wasn't built until 1886. What you have is a Morgan silver dollar. If the date is so worn that you can't determine the last number, then based on that condition, the coin's value is only for the silver content. As of 23 January 2013, it's worth about $25.

A Morgan silver dollar is a large dollar coin, on the front there should be a depiction of Lady Liberty's face wearing a small crown saying "LIBERTY" on it the reverse features an eagle with olive branches and arrows and a wreath at the bottom. They were dated 1878 to 1904 and also made in 1921. The only other coin that could be easily confused with a Morgan dollar is a Peace Dollar of which some were also minted in 1921, they have the same size, but the liberty on a Peace dollar looks like there are rays coming out of her head and the reverse of a Peace dollar has an eagle perched on a rock engraved PEACE.

Chief Engraver Charles E Barber designed a Liberty Head series for dimes, quarters, and half dollars, 1892-1916. Miss Liberty was on one side. The other side of the dime had a wreath, that of the quarter and of the half-dollar an eagle.

The Walking Liberty Dollar, better known as a Silver Eagle is a US bullion coin. On the obverse (heads) it features a woman personifying liberty, in her hand she has an olive branch and her other hand is outstretched to the sun. Flowing in front of her is an American flag. This is the same obverse (heads) design that was used on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar. On the reverse (tails) it features an eagle with its wings spread, olive branches grasped in one foot and arrows in another with stars above it. It says above the stars "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and below it "1 OZ. FINE SILVER ~ ONE DOLLAR". They are worth generally the price of silver in the coin (with usually a dollar or two added because of the fact it is a coin) which is always higher than the one dollar face value.

You're describing a 1923 US Peace dollar, called that because it was struck to commemorate the end of WWI. There's more information at the question "What is the value of a 1923 US silver dollar?"

If your (walking liberty half dollar) coin is dated 1916 (and some 1917 coins) the mintmark is found underneath "In God we Trust" on the front of the coin. All other years the mintmark is found on the reverse of the coin to the left of the branch that the eagle is sitting on. Keep in mind that if your coin has no mintmark, it was minted in Philadelphia. If you have a silver eagle dollar which also uses the walking liberty design, the mintmark will be on the back under the olive branch that the eagle is holding. Bullion silver eagles do not contain mintmarks and could be minted from a number of different mints depending on the year the coin was issued.

A silver dollar can feasibly mean at least three different coins. From 1840-1873 the Seated Liberty dollar was minted. It depicts a seated woman (an idealized Lady Liberty). From 1878-1921 the Morgan silver dollar was minted. It features again Lady Liberty, modeled after a school teacher named Anna Williams. From 1921-1935 the Peace silver dollar was minted. It was designed by Anthony de Francisci to represent Lady Liberty modeled by his wife Teresa. Other commemorative silver dollars have been minted since, but after the 1930's and 40's real silver dollars came out of circulation. These three are probably what you are asking about.

The biggest difference is Peace dollars exist and Liberty dollars don't. A very common mistake non-collectors or amateurs make with US silver dollars is they think because the word LIBERTY is on the obverse of a Peace dollar (or other coins) it's called a liberty dollar. No US coin is referred to as just a "Liberty" coin. Also this comes up with Morgan dollars, but with the national motto E PLURIBUS UNUM because it's on the front of the coin.

Other than size, appearance, and monetary value... not much. If both were minted pre 1965, then they are both 90% silver. Both underwent a few different styles. For the silver dollar, there were Liberty, Morgan, and Peace designs. Dimes were Liberty, Barber, Mercury and Roosevelt.

Your coin is called a Morgan dollar. "American Eagle" coins are modern bullion pieces made since 1986 for collectors and investors; Morgan, Peace, and other standard-issue silver dollars were made for use in ordinary commerce. They were discontinued in 1935. Please see the question "What is the value of an 1880 US silver dollar?" for more information.

you bend it and compare it to other silver dollar

The coins were issued for different purposes and have different designs. The Trade dollar was slightly heavier and issued only for Overseas circulation, mainly in the Orient. It had a Liberty figure seated on the front (the joke was on a toilet seat) while the reverse has a heraldic eagle. (Oddly the positions of the olive branch and arrows in the eagle's talons are reversed, signifying a preference for war. The Morgan dollar is only one of a series of silver dollars that were minted for use in the US. "Morgan" refers to its designer, George T. Morgan, rather than to the denomination as a whole. Other silver-dollar designs included Liberty Head, Peace, Seated Liberty, etc. Morgan's design shows stylized Goddess of Liberty with a visored crown, and seems to be based on the Greek goddess Arethusa - a maritime goddess- maybe the princess of Atlantis, so to speak, while the tails side shows a spread-winged American eagle. Both Latin and Gothic letterings are used on the reverse of the Morgan dollar.

About $14 or $15, depending on how worn it is. Your coin is an example of the famous Morgan dollar series, named for the artist who designed it. The woman's head is of course (!) Miss Liberty, with an image similar to the one used for the Statue of Liberty.

The term "Seated Liberty Dollar" refers to silver dollars produced in the United States between 1840 and 1873. The coins have and image on the obverse (front) of a woman representing Liberty seated, facing left (although with her body facing right), with a shield in front of her. Note that "Gobrecht Dollar", dated either 1836 or 1839, has a very similar obverse but a different eagle on the revese (back) - it is generally considered to be a pattern coin. Note that the Trade Dollar, produced between 1873 and 1878 (with proofs made until 1885) for trade in the Far East, also has a seated depiction of Liberty, but the image of the woman is different (she is, amongst other things, holding a branch in front of her), and the reverse has the words "TRADE DOLLAR". Finally, note that the Liberty Seated device also appeared on the half dime, dime, quarter and half dollar during much of the Liberty Seated Silver Dollar's time of circulation.

The 1989 (and all other dates) One Dollar Silver Eagle coins are bullion coins that have 1 ounce of pure silver in them with a value that follows the market price of silver which changes by the minute and right now it's $17.34 per ounce. Because of that the worth of the coin is a little less than spot price at time of sale.

Post new question. All US coins have the word LIBERTY on them. Also for 1999 there are two different one dollar coins. One is the SBA copper-nickel coin, the other is a large ASE silver coin.

Other than the fact that a 1979 SBA dollar coin is about the size of a quarter, a Liberty Lobby coin is a large 1 ounce silver round with the LL logo on the reverse.

what is a silver 1998 silver coin witha 5 and roses on one side and a doubleheaded eagle on the other worth

Most of the silver coinage, like the half dime (worth 5 cents and struck in silver, the nickel wouldn't be minted until much later), the dime, the quarter, and the half-dollar used the seated Liberty design along with the silver dollar. The penny was a lot larger than the penny we use today, closer to the size of a half dollar, and used the braided hair design. There was also a three-cent piece which was really small, made out of silver and had a star on one side and a C and III on the other. There was also a small gold dollar, smaller than a dime but made out of 90% pure gold. There were other gold coins too, the quarter eagle, worth $2.50, half eagle worth $5, eagle worth $10, along with the double eagle worth $20, each of them struck with 90% pure gold (alloyed with 10% copper to make the coins scratch and wear resistant).

More information is needed - what is the coin's date, mint mark, and condition? US silver dollars carried a picture of Miss Liberty from 1794 to 1935, and so do modern Presidential dollars. All other $1 coins have that word on them, so "Liberty dollar" could apply to any of them.

Yes. The "woman" was an image of Lady Liberty. Called a "Liberty Head", there were three denominations made. The Eagle ($10), the Half Eagle ($5), and the Quarter Eagle ($2.50)
