Full Description

First released in 1878, the Morgan Silver Dollar had a 43 year run in the American monetary system, and is one of the most recognized silver dollar design in numismatics. Production of the Morgan Silver dollar halted in 1904 due to a fall in demand and a shortage in the silver bullion supply. In 1918, under the provision of the Pittman Act: 270,232, 722 silver dollars were melted and later in 1921 production resumed and over 85,000,000 Morgan Silver dollars were minted.

The Pre-21 Morgan Silver Dollar graded MS64 by the Numismatic Guarantee Corporation is a true gem that allows casual and enthusiastic collector's to add a piece of history to their collection. The MS64 designation is characterized by an "average or better strike with several obvious marks or hairlines and other minuscule imperfections."


Shown facing left on the front of the Morgan Silver Dollar is classic representation of Lady Liberty. Designed by George T. Morgan, a former pupil of William Wyon of the Royal Mint in London; the artist chose to feature Lady Liberty with a freedom cap and chose a model whose features were truly American. Her crown of cotton and wheat further solidifies her American roots.


On the back of the coin is a classic heraldic eagle design, similar to the Great Seal of the United States. A classically designed Bald American Eagle is shown, wings spread wide open, clutching a bundle of arrows and an olive branch. Inscribed around the patriotic image: "United States of American," "In God We Trust," and "One Dollar" are shown separated by stars.
