A 1794 silver dollar that experts believe was the first such coin struck by the U.S. Mint sold for a record $10 million at auction at Stack's Bowers Galleries.
The coin, called the Flowing Hair Silver Dollar, sold for more than double the previous $4.1 million record for a coin, which was set in 1999.
It was purchased by Legend Numismatics, a rare-coin firm based in New Jersey, according to Reuters.
