The Continental dollar, one of the most storied and researched coins in
American numismatics for more than two centuries, continues to be among the
most enigmatic relics of the colonial American era. From the infancy of
numismatic pursuits in the United States, the Continental dollar has been
upheld as an essential piece of American coinage, despite an uncertain
origin. It also contains charming aphorisms, such as "Mind Your Business"
(meant to be more about running a tight ship than keeping to yourself) and
"Fugio" (Latin for "time flies.")
The amazing PCGS MS64 EG FECIT example that will be featured in the
upcoming Long Beach Auction 1334 is struck in Pewter and would be a true
prize in any collector's cabinet. This six-figure coin is truly
museum-quality in MS64 condition and would appeal to history buffs and
those who are interested in American financial history, not just coin
