Is the eagle side of a 1922 silver dollar upside down in comparison to lady liberty on the front?
Yes. Please check your pocket change. ALL U.S. coins have their reverse sides oriented upside-down with respect to the obverse (front) side. There's nothing special about that orientation. Some countries' coins have both sides oriented the same way while others are opposite. It's just a matter of choice.
Answer Please check your pocket change! ALL coins in the U.S. have their reverse sides oriented upside down with respect to the front, so what you have is an ordinary circulation coin, not an error. A lot of late-issue Walkers were saved, so they remain common among collectors. Regardless of condition or mint mark your coin is worth about $10.50, mostly due to its silver content.
If it's a 1979 Susan B. Anthony dollar it's not silver and I'm going out on a limb to say that the eagle isn't upside-down either. ALL U.S. coins minted since the 19th century have the front and back oriented 180º to each other so that the sides point oppositely when a coin is flipped side to side like the page of a book.
Please compare your coin's orientation to other U.S. coins. If the eagle is upside down when you flip the coin sideways like turning the page of a book, that is normal for ALL U.S. coins. Try it with a penny from your pocket change! In any case you have a nice coin - current retail for an 1883-CC dollar is in the range of $75 to $100 depending on condition.
Is there any value in a misprinted 50 cent piece. 1950 Benjamin Franklin and on the back the liberty bell is upside down?
By "upside down", do you mean that the eagle is upside down when you flip the coin side to side, like the pages of a book, or top to bottom, like a calendar? Compare your dollar to any coin in your pocket change. If the eagle is upside down when flipped side to side, just like the other coins, you have a normal silver dollar worth maybe $12 to $15 depending on condition. If it's…
Please compare your coin to others in your pocket change. ALL U.S. coins are minted with the back side oriented upside-down with respect to the front. Assuming your dollar is in circulated condition and has a copper-colored edge it's made of copper-nickel not worth anything special. If it's a proof coin or is in a special package that's marked 40% silver it's worth about $4 or $5 as of 07/2009.
What are the release dates for Liberty The American Revolution - 1997 The World Turned Upside Down 1778-1783 1-5?
Please check the coins in your pocket first. ALL coins in the U.S. have their reverse sides oriented 180 degrees from the front. If you flip the dollar like a book page, the head will be right side up and the eagle will be upside down. That's normal. OTOH, on the off chance that both sides point the same direction you could have a rotated die error, or you could have a counterfeit. A professional…
First you must determine if the reverse is upside down. All US coins are struck as "coin turned" meaning the reverse is upside down from the obverse. lay the coin flat on a table with the obverse up, turn it from left to right. If the eagle is upside down this is normal. If it's not, you have whats called a "Rotated Die" error that must be seen for an assessment of value. In general…
Upside down is relative to which way you flip the coin. If flipping from top to bottom, the eagle should be upright. If flipping from side to side, the eagle should be upside-down. If the eagle is truly upside down from the way it should be, AND the coin has not been altered, then it could be worth a couple of hundred dollars.
Is your statue of liberty dollar coin good if the picture of the president that is on the other side is upside down?
If anyone could predict the future they'd be buying and selling to make themselves inordinately rich. The best that can be said is that it's unlikely the price of silver has more upside potential than downside. However, as we've seen with gold ($800/oz in the 1970s, then crash to $200, now around $1100) there are no guarantees either way.
Unless it has the word PEACE on the back, it's a Morgan dollar. 1921 is the single most common date for that design. There's more information at the Related Question. If you check the coins in your pocket change you'll find that the reverse side of ALL US coins is oriented 180º to the front, i.e. upside down, and they ALL have the motto E Pluribus Unum so neither of these is anything special. There's…
$6.00.. almost every coin is made so that the front will be facing north and the back will be facing south.. 1922 is also one of the most minted years for Peace Dollars. Sorry! <><><> Due to the SHARP increase in the price of silver, any of the 90% silver dollars are worth at least $30 for the value of the silver, plus any collector's value. As of 4-8-2011
Please take a couple of seconds to look at your pocket change! ALL U.S. coins have the front and back oriented 180º from each other so this is nothing unusual. The value of your coin depends on how worn it is and whether there is a mint mark letter above the ONE in ONE DOLLAR on the back. There's more information at the Related Question. = Answer = with silver hitting over $30 an ounce…
It would be an incredible find because there are no 1827 dollar coins. The U.S. didn't make any dollars for circulation between 1804 and 1835 inclusive. Please check your coin again. If it's a different denomination, please post a new question. If it says "1 dollar" you have a counterfeit - the market has been flooded with fakes, mostly from the Far East. Some are very good, and others are laughably bad with impossible dates…

What is value of a 1922 gold peace dollar with the eagle upside down when you flip the coin side to side?
It's gold plated, not gold. A gold coin that size would have been worth far more than $1 even back in 1922. The good news is that the underlying silver is still worth at least $10 or so based on whatever the current spot price is. The upside-down eagle is normal. Did you look at the coins in your pocket change? ALL U.S. coins have their reverse side oriented 180º to the front.
