8. None of the above

I feel the millions of dollars required to buy one of those coins could be better spent assembling an amazing collection of spectacular coins, currency and exonumia.

First thought was the same a nfine, BUT, given that in this scenario I had unlimited money, I chose the 1794 Flowing Hair.... and would, of course, still build a collection of anything else. If only......

As I've seen or handled every coin on this list minus the 1794 dollar I can judge off of my in person experience. I'd have to go with an 1804 dollar. The 1849 double eagle is a cool and impressive coin, but has terrible eye appeal if I'm being honest. Same thing with the 1933 double eagle. A close second would be the 1794 dollar.

Because why not. And if budget is truly unlimited, then nothing would stop me from getting the whole band under my management.

Seems like everyone loves the 1794 dollar! I personally would go with the 1849 $20.

Fine by me. I did not want to fight everyone for the nickel.

I chose the 1913 Barber Nickel.

Brother, can you spare a "BARBER" dime?

Well, unless you win the lottery you're not going to be able to fill that hole. That coin is so rare that it's not funny!

What? Not the 1804? Think of the resale value. I could get a whole roll of the $10 Beavers that I really want. A whole roll of them would satisfy me for a while.

I already have a plugged, polished and genuine 1795 dollar in my belt buckle. No need for a 1794 too.

1849 $20. If I was really that rich, I'd want the one and only specimen in the entire world. The Smithsonian can come to me when they want to see it. You could fill a bucket with all those 1794 silver dollars floating around.

Well, I was actually referring to one and only 1794 dollar that sold for $10 million. It's unique because its planchet was the VERY FIRST silver dollar planchet to be physically struck my the US Mint. It also has a unique silver plug inside of it because the weight wasn't correct.

nfine has said it right for me.

None of my favorite coins are in the list anyway.
My avatar might give some readers in idea of where my preferences may lie.
A common St Gaudens in MS-65 or better would suffice.

I'd buy the 1933 Gold Double Eagle since I don't have one for my type set. LOL
My favorite album!
