United States Morgan Silver Dollars 1878 - 1921
Since the opening of the country's first mintat Philadelphia in 1793, United States coins have at one time or another been minted in seven other cities, each of which had been assigned a distinctive mint mark. Only the mother mint at Philadelphia distinguished her issues through the absence of a mint mark.
The Peak of the Engravers Art
The beautiful Morgan Silver Dollar was sculpted by George T. Morgan, in 1876, and is considered by experts to be the peak of the engraver's art. The obversebears the regal head of Liberty and the reverse is a striking design incorporating the majestic American eagle within a wreath. These high relief coins bear his signature on both sides of each coin, the only regular issue coin in United States history to bear the sculptor's signature on both sides.
Millions of Silver Dollars
Minting of these historic coins started in 1873 with the passage of the Bland-Allisan Act and were produced in the Philadelphia Mint until 1921. Massive meltdowns of Morgan Silver dollars in the 20th Century and their popularity with collectors and investors have reduced the supply of these coins drastically.
