Seated Liberty Dollars are a fascinating series, with the first issue known as a Gobrecht Dollar, named after the designer, Third U.S. Mint’s Chief Engraver, Christian Gobrecht. It was the last silver dollar to be struck before the Coinage Act of 1873, temporarily ending silver dollar production in American commerce. The technical advancement of steam-powered coinage production and artistic improvements in design were implemented in this series. The obverse features portrait of Lady Liberty seated on a stone, with a heraldic shield marked “Liberty” in her right hand, symbolic of our Nation’s readiness. Her left hand holds aloft a pole topped with a liberty cap, symbolic of American freedom. The first two issue types were considered patterns; Type I featured a Flying Eagle Reverse With Stars (1836), and Type II was the Flying Eagle Reverse and No Stars (1839). Both Gobrecht Dollar types had less than 2,000 proof strikes. The first large-scale circulating coinage began officially in 1840, with the Type III “No Motto” reverse (1840-1866) featuring an eagle perched on an olive branch and holding three arrows,. The Type IV reverse (1866-1873) was modified With Motto, ‘IN GOD WE TRUST’ on the ribbon scroll above the eagle.
