The purpose of this paper is to study the solutions to the Signorini problem with Coulomb friction (the so-called Coulomb problem). Some optimal a priori estimates are given, and a uniqueness criterion is exhibited. Recently, nonuniqueness examples have been presented in the continuous framework. It is proved, here, that if a solution satisfies a certain hypothesis on the tangential displacement and if the friction coefficient is small enough, it is the unique solution to the problem.
