While the origin and purpose of the 1776 Continental dollar has long been an intriguing topic of discussion among numismatists and researchers, Eric P. Newman believed that these coins were American-made. Further, the fact that the Continental Currency paper $1 notes were eliminated from the six issues from July 22, 1776, through September 26, 1778, indicates that Congress planned for a $1 coin, and that the Continental dollar was used as fiat money. Multiple varieties exist, and varying quantities of coins were struck in pewter, brass, and silver from multiple die combinations and die stages. For every genuine one such as this, there seem to be nearly countless copies, many of which were sold in souvenir shops.
