1866 Seated Liberty Silver Dollar - No Motto
One of the rarest of all US coinage is the 1866 Seated Liberty Silver Dollar "No Motto" variety. Only 2 proof coins of this type were ever made without the motto on the reverse. 1866 was a transitional year for the design of the reverse on the Seated Liberty dollar. Most coins of this year included the introduction of a banner bearing the motto "IN GOD WE TRUST" above the eagle. Each of these "fantasy" coins are worth well in excess of $1 million - making them some of the rarest and most valuable of all US coins!
