Morgan Dollars

Morgan Silver Dollars – Historically Popular Coin Series

Morgan Silver Dollars are the most desirable and collected vintage U.S. silver coins. They are the largest silver dollars in U.S. Mint history, imparting the nickname “Cartwheels”. They are romanced about because they remind us about the geography, history, and folklore of the American Wild West.  

Named for their designer, George T. Morgan, who was the seventh person to hold the title Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint, the obverse design portrays Lady Liberty wearing a slave’s cap (an ancient symbol of freedom), a ribbon inscribed with the word “Liberty,” and cotton and wheat as a tribute to America’s agricultural heritage.  The design on the reverse features an American eagle holding both the olive branch of peace and arrows of war. Morgan Silver Dollars are minted from 0.7734 troy ounces of .900 pure silver and have a melt value of $12.14 based on a silver price of $15.70 per troy ounce 7/9/2017

This fascinating coin series is chock-full of interesting coins to collect, more than any other U.S. Mint coin series. They are collected by condition, date, mint mark, die variety and rarity. Despite several hundred million coins falling victim to the melting pots of three occasions: the Pittman Act of 1918, the Great Depression 1929-1939 and in the early 1980s when the price of silver reached $50 an ounce; there remains an adequate supply of low and medium grade coins that can be collected on almost any budget. Coins in this series become challenging in Mint State 65 (MS65) condition and are exceptionally rare in MS67-MS68 condition. Almost all Morgan Silver Dollars are rare in Proof strike.

Morgan Silver Dollars were minted from 1878 – 1904 and then again for one year only in 1921. The coins were struck at:

Philadelphia – P 1878 – 1904 + 1921
San Francisco – S 1878 – 1904 + 1921
Carson City – CC 1878 – 1893
New Orleans - O 1879 – 1904
