NEW YORK (Kitco News) – It’s the stuff coin dreams are made of. A rare 1794 U.S. silver dollar will be placed on the bidding block next month and is expected to sell for between $3 million and $5 million.

There are only 150 of the coins known to exist, and this is one of the three best preserved. The coin will be up for auction in New York City on September 30.

CNN Reported that John Kraljevich, a consultant for the auction house Stack’s Bowers that’s handling the sale, said the coin’s historical significance has collectors craving it.

“The whole idea for the dollar begins with this coin,” Kraljevich said in a report from CNN. “It’s foundational for […] the U.S.’s place in world commerce.”

The finest known specimen of the 1794 Silver Dollar shattered the world record for a coin sale in 2013 when it fetched $10 million at auction.

The report said that the silver dollar up for sale next month, was a forgotten keepsake of an English lord that languished for 170 years in a cabinet.

History of Pawn Shops and Pawnbrokers

In the past 100 years, the number of pawnbrokers has skyrocketed in the United States. During the Great Depression era, pawn shops were among the only institutions offering cash as banks failed and people were forced to give up their cherished items to make ends meet.

Today, whether in big cities and small towns, pawn shops are still a primary place people can go to turn their items into cash. Pawnbrokers operate as mini-banks for millions of Americans who do not hold checking accounts, and they also serve as an area of exchange for people of all class backgrounds to buy and sell unique, rare or coveted items. Electronics, musical instruments and distinctive pieces of clothing are also common items pawnbrokers accept for collateral pawn loans.
