Coin and Paper Money Collecting/Mis-printed Dollar Coin


Hi there! I used to work in the banking industry and when the new George Washington (gold) dollar coins began to circulate, we recieved a few mis-printed coins at the bank now & then.  We (tellers) exchanged the coins out and took the mis-printed ones home with us.  The coins have no writing/engraving what so ever on the sides where I believe it was supposed to have the "In God We Trust" engraved on the sides of the coin.  Each coin had smooth surfaces around the edges.  Are these still worth anything special or just the goold 'ol dollar?  I'd greatly appreciate any help with this.  I have 3/4 coins at home hiding in a safe spot...  :)

Hi Christine,

At one time they were worth about $100 each, before collectors knew how many existed.  Now they are not so rare.  The last ones I bought, I paid about $20 each for them.

Check on ebay for currents prices.  Search for "Godless Dollar" "Plain edge dollar", etc.  I bet you will find some on eBay.
