This question comes up frequently. If you think about it for a few moments, how likely would it be for the Mint to make the same "mistake" on hundreds of millions of coins struck over a 14-year period without fixing it? The explanation is that it's NOTan error, just artistic license!

"Misprint"To clear things up, coins are said to be STRUCK or MINTED. The word "print" is used for things made with paper and ink, like $1 bills.

WHAT IS A 1900 silver dollar worth with a misprint of instead of reading in god you trust it reads in god you trvst worth?

Please check your coin again. The motto is In God WE Trust, and on a 1900 Morgan dollar the word is spelled using the English alphabet so it appears as TRUST rather than TRVST. The latter spelling was used on Peace dollars issued from 1921 to 1935. And to further clear things up, coins are said to be minted or struck. "Print" refers to paper and ink, like dollar bills.

Do all 1921 and 1923 silver dollars have the word trust spelled with a V?

AnswerAll Peace dollars, which include all 1923 silver dollars and all 1921 Peace dollars*, use the Latin spelling of TRUST, which is TRVST. (Latin had no "v" character, but their "u" looked like our "v." That's why a "w" is called a "double-u" instead of a "double-v.") The Morgan dollar design didn't use this spelling, so 1921 Morgan dollars render the word "TRUST."Note that most 1921 dollars were struck using the Morgan design. These do not have the word PEACE on the back and depict the eagle with its wings open, so they're very easy to tell apart from the Peace design.


How much is a 1929 silver dollar with no mint mark and trust spelled trvst?

Your coin is not genuine if it is dated 1929. There were no Peace Dollars produced in 1929 (however, on genuine Peace Dollars Trust is spelled with its Latinized spelling as Trvst also). Being as your coin is a fantasy piece, it has no collectible value. The only value it has is for its precious metal content, however, not being an official mint product, there is no standard metal content of it. Such a coin could be 100% silver, 90% silver, silver plated, or might contain no silver at all. Since it isn't a genuine coin, I would first off try to see what type of material it is made out of then it would be worth the going price for that metal.

Does a silver dollar early 20th century that states In God you Trvst trust spelled with a V have any additional value?

TRVST is the normal spelling for all Peace Dollars (1921-1935). It was done this way because the coins were lettered with the Latin alphabet, not the English alphabet. So it's not an error -- just a normal coin from that time. And in any case the motto is In God WE Trvst, not "you". Please post a new question with the date and condition of the coin to be more specific as to value.


What is the value of an 1883 silver dollar with in God you trvst?

No US coins say "In god YOU trust", and the Latin spelling "trvst" was only used on Peace dollars minted from 1921 to 1935. As you can tell by looking at coins in your pocket change, the motto is In God WE Trust. Please check the coin's date again to verify it versus the motto. If it is an 1883 dollar you have what's called a Morgan dollar after its designer, George T. Morgan. There's more information at the Related Question.


What is the value of a 1979 dollar coin with the word trust misspelled trvst?

Note that it's very definitely NOT an error, but rather a case of artistic license.
