“Kota” Saint Jovite Youngblood earned his bachelor’s degree in business from Case Western Reserve University in 1993 and has since built a 20-year career in financing and antique acquisition. As the president of Youngblood Metals Mining and a certified professional coin grading service member, Saint Jovite Youngblood specializes in securing collectible coins for antique dealers. Below are three collectible dollar coins.
1. Flowing Hair dollar – Issued in 1794 and 1795, the American collectible coin was ranked 20th by Garrett and Guth in the 100 Greatest U.S. Coins book. The most known well-kept coin sold for over $10 million.
2. Liberty Seated dollar – Designed by Christian Gobrecht and first minted in 1840, the series continued until 1873. Depicted on the coin, as the name suggests, is the Statue of Liberty in a seated position surrounded by stars representing the original 13 states. The opposing side features an eagle. Depending on the condition of the coin, prices vary from hundreds to thousands of dollars.
3. Peace dollar – Released in 1921 to commemorate America’s World War I victory, the peace dollar was in circulation until 1928 and minted again in 1934-1935. Because of limited availability, the 1934 coins are considered the most valuable.
