The famous Morgan Silver Dollar is the mostpopular of U.S. coins. This beautiful example of late 19th century design has always been the most actively traded investment coin. It forms the backbone of the U.S. Rare Coin Market.

The dollar, adopted as the basic unit of United States coinage in 1785, has been struck periodically since 1794. Rising production from silver mines in Colorado and Nevada led to the Bland-Allison Act of 1878 which restored the suspended minting of silver dollars.

These new coins were minted using a design by Assistant Mint Engraver George T. Morgan. The Morgan dollar was struck in Philadelphia, San Francisco and the now defunct New Orleans and Carson City mints. In 1918 alone, over 270 million of these silver dollars were melted down into bullion. There are over 100 date and mint variations of this coin. When available, consecutive date sets with a representation of all four mints are one of the best ways to invest in Morgan Silver Dollars.
