Certainly the value champion has to be the "1804" dollar. I put 1804 in quotes because these coins were really struck in 1834 using old dies to create a presentation set for the King of Siam. Auction prices have exceeded $4 million.

The most physically rare dollar is an 1851-O Seated Liberty coin, of which only one specimen is known.
