    Hey folks,
    Just picked this up as part of an estate collection. I can’t find any info on it anywhere. It is quite large...maybe 3” across.

    I’d appreciate any help. Thanks.

    Value of 1893 HK-157 Columbian Exposition Declaration of Independence
    This So-Called Dollar is given the catalog number HK-157
    The obverse text on this So-Called Dollar reads Signing of Declaration of Independence July 4th 1776, World’s Columbian Exposition 1892 1893, Columbus Washington Chicago and the reverse text is Discovery of America October 1492 Dec. 1820 Landing of the Pilgrims. The front side of the coin shows the signing of the Declaration in the upper portion of the dollar, with a centered eagle in the lower half and portraits of Columbus and Washington to either side. A long banner runs through the center of the coin. The backside of the coin depicts a banner running through the center of the reverse of the coin as well, with a date inscribed on it. Columbus’ landing is in the upper segment of the coin, and a man is hanging on the cross with boats and palm trees in the background. Below are Native American Indians welcoming the new Pilgrims to the new World. The boats are seen in the distance..

    So-Called Dollars can be difficult to price, difficult to identify, and difficult to find.

We are always happy to give you an auction estimate, or an outright buying price if you are in a hurry to sell. Our experts have extensive knowledge of these coins, as well as all types of rare medals and tokens. When looking to sell, just remember that we are rare coin buyers!

    That sure was fast! Thanks for the info. However, that lists the diameter as 40mm while mine is more like 57mm.
