The Civil War was a devastating conflict that ripped apart our nation, pitting North against South and brother against brother. As the war dragged on much longer than anyone anticipated, resourceswere stretched thinner and thinner. Many citizens worried that paper money and government bonds might quickly become valueless, so they began hoarding coins for their valuable metal content. Suddenly,federal coinage like nickels, dimes, and other small cent coins simply vanished from circulation.
In order to make up for the lack of small coins, the government approved a new three-cent silver coin known as a trime. Designed by James B. Longacre, the silver three-cent coin's obverse featured a six-pointed star with a striped shield in the center. In later issues, the reverse depicteda roman numeral three with an olive branch above and a bundle of arrows below. The silver three-cent piece was eventually replaced with a nickel three-cent piece because people began hoarding the silver.
This exciting collection brings together some of the rarest and most sought-after small coins from the historic Civil War era--each more than 130 years old!--to preserve an important piece of America's numismatic history that nearly vanished in the fog of war.
