  No dollar collectors here? Is there another forum site that might have more enthusiasm that someone can recommend?

As far as the rarest dollar coin it would have to be the 1911 silver dollar.

2 exist. One in public collectors hands and one in the Bank of Canada Museum.

Circulating and non-circulating $1 silver dollars. i don't consider Pattern Coins (1911) relevant or varieties, just mintage numbers. Thanks.
