Description

The legendary Morgan Silver Dollar, the "Coin of the Wild West," lays claim to many firsts, but it's not the first coin of the American West. The FIRST silver dollar was actually the Mexican 8 Reales, a silver coin that filled a need long before the U.S. Mint was established in the West and before the U.S. government banned foreign coins as legal tender in 1857. Now, add this historic coin to your collection with The First Silver Dollar Of The American West Coin, an exclusive presentation from The Bradford Exchange Mint.

Hefty and the same size as a Morgan, the 8 Reales silver coin was also the first Silver Dollar of the Mexican Republic. Minted first in 1822 and containing 20 grams of 90% silver, this extraordinary treasure of the American West is a silver coin nearly 200 years old. Your historic coin arrives secured in a crystal-clear tamper-proof holder; it also comes with a handsome mahogany-finished Deluxe Display Box, perfect for showcasing and protecting your coin for years to come. This rare collecting opportunity is expected to excite very strong demand, so do not wait. Order now!
