Ron Guth: In 1792, Joseph Wright created dies for a proposed Quarter Dollar.  Uniface impressions were made of the obverse and reverse dies on thick blanks of pewter or white metal (and leather per Q. David Bowers).  Later, pattern pieces were struck as samples in copper and white metal.  The uniface impressions are unique and have been for over a century.

Unfortunately, Joseph Wright died in the Yellow Fever outbreak in Philadelphia in 1793.  Had he lived, the designs on the first American coins might have been markedly different.
