What is a 1851-P Silver Three Cent Coin?

The 1851-P Silver Three Cent Coin is a silver coin that was produced at the Philadelphia mint. It has a legal tender value of $0.03. This was produced as a "Mint Strike" coin which usually means it was intended for circulation. A very large number of these coins were minted (5,447,400 to be exact), making this a less-collectible item. This coin was minted in the first year of its series, and is a more popular coin to collectors for that reason, but not necessarily to investors. This coin contains a relatively small amount of silver at 0.60023 grams (0.02 oz. Adjusted Silver Weight).
