I see publications proclaiming the 1804 Dollar as the King of US coins. Then another claiming Only 1 legal 1933 St. Gaudens. Then only 5 known Liberty nickels and only 2 known 1841O gold half eagles. I will never own any of these great coins but I was curious in terms of absolute rarity, Which U.S. coin is the true King of them all.

Hello Grape, Just regular issue and proofs but not errors like the '43 copper cent and such. I went and did a google search for a list and answered my own question. It appears the true "King" is the 1849 $20 Lib listed as unique in the Smithsonian. A $17 million dollar value. BTW, I just acquired a nice '28 Peace dollar from your friends over at Golden Eagle and I am still waiting for the USPS to deliver the 1921 Peace I ordered as well.

My understanding is that the 1873-CC No Arrows dime is unique.

It was the last coin to be acquired by Louis Eliasberg when he was assembling his complete set of US coins by date and mint.

Hi Commems, I Just looked at the list and the 1873 CC no arrows dime is # 29 on the list with a value of $1,276,000 The list is incredible! What I wouldn't give to have any of these but all I can do is dream.

The list I was looking at contains the top 200 coins from highest value to lowest. I wish the moderator would allow the link to be posted but this site will not allow it. It is truly remarkable!

I think the 1964 Peace dollar is the rarest. If anyone has one they ain't saying, so the chance of getting one and telling anyone is 0.

If unverified, then I don't think it qualifies.

Sometimes, dreams have to suffice!

Are you looking for the highest selling price or the rarest coin? Your post title suggests rarest coin, but the list you are now referring to deals with selling prices. They are two different lists!

Considering the US Govt will probably take any 1964 Peace dollars, it will probably be unverified for a long time. I doubt it will even be sold internationally as the US Govt would treat it as a cultural icon and demand its return, which most other governments would probably return it.

It is actually the one one coin you need to complete a set.

The only legal 1964 " Peace dollar" to own would be the overstrike by Daniel Carr.

Hello Commems, In my original post I was indeed referring to absolute rarity and not highest value but in many respects one goes along with the other. The list doesn't give the mintage figures but in the case of the 1849 double eagle the actual mintage is 1, so I can see that being the rarest coin on the list and the highest valued. Curiously however I did not see the 1841O half eagle on that list despite having a mintage of only 50 with a footnote of (2 known). I suppose the rest were melted down?

The two that I am thinking of is the 1804 dollar class II overstruck over Swiss thaler and 1814 half dollar struck in platinum.

Which would technically be an illegal counterfeit if just one US minted 1964 Peace dollar was found to still exist.
