Bust dollars, also otherwise known as early dollars, refer collectively to the Flowing Hair dollar struck in 1794 and 1795 as well as the Draped Bust dollar, which was produced from 1795 through 1804. Bust dollars are popular early American coins, and many collectors and dealers specialize in this area of the hobby. While they are usually collected only as type coins, there are some ambitious collectors who pursue entire date runs or specialize in collecting the many different varieties that enthusiasts have identified within the realm of Bust dollars.

The Flowing Hair dollar was America's first official silver dollar, with the first released in 1794. The coin was engraved by Robert Scot and features a visage of Miss Liberty with flowing hair on the obverse of the coin. The reverse showcases an eagle perched on a wreath. On the edge of the coin is the inscription HUNDRED CENTS ONE DOLLAR OR UNIT. The 1794 dollar is much scarcer than the 1795, though both dates are extremely scarce. Numismatists attribute several varieties to the 1795, and some collectors pursue these individually.
