It is believed that this coin was held in the hands of the first President of the United States, George Washington.

A 1794 silver dollar was put up for auction, which is the most expensive coin in the world. In 2013, it was sold for $ 10 million and its back on sale again.

The first mint dollar depicts Lady Liberty, stylized as the ancient Greek goddesses. The reverse side is engraved with an eagle – the heraldic symbol of the United States.

“This is a dream coin — a priceless artifact that I have been proud to own, and I’m very sorry to see it go” the owner of the coin, Bruce Morelan, told CNN.

It is noted that a total of 1758 such coins were issued, and only about 130 have survived to this day. They were mainly intended for congressmen and honorary citizens of the United States.

According to Douglas Mudd, the curator and director at the American Numismatic Association’s Money Museum, “The details of this coin show that the dies that were used to strike it were in such pristine condition, that this could possibly be the first coin struck from these dies — first silver coin struck from these dies.”

The sale of this precious coin is organized by Legend Auctions and it will be held on October 8 at The Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas.
