A rare 1794 U.S. silver dollar could sell for millions at an upcoming coin auction in New York.

There are only 150 surviving examples of the 1794 dollar in existance with this particular dollar, known as the  Lord Saint Oswald specimen, ranking among the three finest in the world.

The finest known example of a 1794 silver dollar currently holds the world record for the most expensive coin ever sold-a title it achieved in 2013 after selling for an astonishing $10 million at auction. 

This coin is not expected to break that record-though it could make up to $5 million when it heads to auction with Stacks Bowers on the 30th of September.
