What is a 1859-P Silver Three Cent Coin?

The 1859-P Proof Silver Three Cent Coin is a silver coin that was manufactured at the Philadelphia mint. It has a legal tender value of $0.03. As a "Proof" coin, it was minted in a limited quantity, which makes it likely less available than "business strike" or "mint strike" coins which are intended for use in daily transactions. With such a low mintage of only 800, there are likely few of these items available for purchase or at auction in a year. This coin contains a relatively small amount of silver at 0.67487 grams (0.02 oz. Adjusted Silver Weight).
