1892 Columbian Exposition Ferris Wheel Aluminum So Called Dollar HK 173
Up for sale is a large aluminum medal issued as a souvenir to those attending the 1892-1893 Columbian Exposition.This is one of the rarer Ferris Wheel Dollars. Reverse features a standing female representing the Columbian Exposition. Named after it's designer George Washington Gale Ferris, Jr.. The
Ferris Wheel was America's answer to the Eiffel Tower, which was built
just four years prior to serve as the centerpiece of the 1889 Paris
Exposition. After the Columbian Exposition closed, the attraction was moved to an affluent Chicago neighborhood where it continued to function until it was moved again to St. Louis for the 1904 World's Fair. Some moderate wear is present on raised surfaces of the designs but the coin's overall features remain in excellent condition. This is an ideal piece for collectors of Columbian Exposition Exonumia.

Low Country Coins was established in
2006 by 2 US Navy Officers (now retired from active duty) Bill, a Chief Warrant Officer 4, and Jason, a Lieutenant, to ethically purchase and sell coins and currency. Early on, we figured out that selling coins
online would only work if you accurately represent your coins, offer them at a fair price, and provide excellent customer service.
Now we are one of the largest online retailers of coins and currency in the US and the largest in SC.
Please feel free to ask questions we are always happy to answer.
