Draped Bust Dollar Large Eagle - Raising The Global Stature Of United States Coins

Back in 1795, the Unites States looked to raise the global stature of their coins. Therefore, noted artist Gilbert Stuart was hired to design the Draped Bust dollar obverse. The maturing of the nation was represented by the more “matronly” female figure replacing the younger Liberty of the preceding Flowing Hair design. The reverse shows a more heraldic eagle, which replaced the younger eagle of the previous dollar.
