dollar type coins

Collecting dollar coins by type can be tough. Compared to half dollars,the early dates tend to be much more expensive.The Morgan and Peace dollars are frequently collected by date.These coins are very common. The earlier types are scarce -- the main reason being that silver dollars were not popular because they were too heavy to carry around.

As discussed on the other type coin pages, he goal of type coin collecting is to get one coin of each design. Generally type collectors will try to get the highest grade of the most common date.
