There are people who think it was the first silver dollar made by the U.S. Mint. The front has a profile of Lady Liberty with long hair, and
the back has an American eagle.

It was sold in 2011 for almost $7.4 million. The doubloon had Brasher's signature EB on the breast.
Coin World says that a private sale of another doubloon in 2018 that had the signature EB on the bird's wing sold for more than $5 million.
At the end of the 1800s, a gold and silversmith from New York City named Ephraim Brasher made the Brasher Doubloon.
In January 2021, a Brasher 2d coin sold for a record $9.36 million.
