The origin of the silver dollar coin in the United States dates back to the early years of our nation. In 1792, Congress passed the Coinage Act, also known as the Mint Act, which authorized the formation of the United States Mint and regulated the production and use of coinage. The Act included a provision stipulating the creation of the American silver dollar, which the U.S. Mint produced from 1794 to 1803. The original 1794 minting consisted of 1,758 pieces. After a 33-year hiatus, the U.S. silver dollar returned in 1836 and has been minted in various forms over the years.
The most recent version of the silver coin dollar is the American Silver Eagle, which was introduced in 1986 and consists of one troy ounce of 99.9 percent pure silver. This silver bullion coin may only be used to fund Individual Retirement Account vehicles.
