1794 Flowing Hair Silver Dollar
The very first US Silver Dollar ever made was produced in 1794 as the Flowing Hair Dollar. This coin did not have a denomination indicator such as "1 D." or "One Dollar" - So the denomination was simply discerned by the diameter size of the coin and the lettering on the edge: "HUNDRED CENTS ONE DOLLAR OR UNIT". The reverse of the coin features the Small Eagle portrait. Source of example image is courtesy of Heritage Auction Galleries.
