Pillar Dollars and Busts Portraits

World Silver Coins

 

This page is for all the post-cob and non-cob silver (and copper) coins in our inventory. It is dominated by the machine-made ("milled") Pieces of Eight known as "pillar dollars" and "portrait" (or "bust") dollars that followed cobs at the various Spanish colonial mints, in addition to their smaller-denomination counterparts ("minors"), but you can also find various world coins at the end of the page.
