The Morgan Dollar holds a special place in U.S. coinage as it was the first coin to feature Lady Liberty with an American look, rather than the traditional Greek style. Her cap is adorned with wheat and cotton as a tribute to America's agricultural history.

The image of the eagle was also updated for the Morgan Dollar, showing a proportionally correct eagle with beautifully designed feathers. He carries an olive branch, showing America's desire for peace, and is perched atop a bundle of arrows, signifying America's readiness to defend her borders against attack.

The Morgan Dollar flooded the markets from 1878-1904. Nearly two decades after production halted, the Morgan Dollar was seen again for one year only, in 1921, due to a renewed desire for this iconic, beautiful design.

The history of Silver Morgan Dollars

The minting of Silver Morgan Dollars was a result of the Bland-Allison Act that reinstated Silver as legal tender in February 1878. Before 1878, production of Silver Dollars and other Silver coinage had been halted under the Coinage Act of 1873, and this left Gold as the standard economic unit of account. Silver coins had become devalued for multiple reasons, including the discovery of the largest Silver vein in world history. By 1878, Congress decided that U.S. coins should be both Silver and Gold, and therefore, Congress passed the Bland-Allison Act, which required the U.S. Treasury to purchase a fixed amount of each month to be minted into Silver coinage.

Why invest in Silver Morgan Dollars?

There are plenty of reasons to invest in Silver Morgan Dollars. Many people invest in Silver Dollars because Silver has long been considered a valuable asset, and these Silver coins have added numismatic and collectible value. Some of the U.S. coins are more rare than others, and their rarity also contributes to their value. The heavy Silver coins contain .7734 troy ounces of fine Silver, and they are legal tender Silver bullion backed by the U.S. government.

Collect Silver Morgan Dollars, coinage of the Wild, Wild West.

Silver Morgan Dollars were used at a time in U.S. history when a cowboy might have sauntered into a saloon and used one of the Silver coins to pay for his drink. Because these Silver Dollars were once circulated, imagining where the Silver coins could have been used and by whom is just part of the fun of owning them. Many who collect the Silver coins for their Wild West appeal, seek out Silver bullion minted by the U.S. Mint in Carson City, Nevada. These U.S. coins bear a “CC” mintmark, and are especially desirable because the Carson City mint had a much lower Silver Dollar mintage than the other four U.S. Mints.

All the coins look like they should be rated and they are better than some I got that were claimed to be MS63 elsewhere. Better price too. Won't ever buy another coin except from Apmex. Trustworthy and good products. An appreciative customer.

As Described, Met Expectations

By  BW

from Mid-Missouri

4.0

Purchased 5 coins to accompany my order. One did have slight wear on it, which would make it AU in my opinion. Two were softly-struck BU's, which is common for the date. Received one that was exceptional with proof-like fields. I didn't expect, nor did I receive, MS-63 coins. I will consider buying a few of these along with all of my future APMEX orders!

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Easy to Sell
  • Recognized Brand

Cons

  • Common (higher mintage)

Ten coins ordered....some rusty.

By  Eagle Pass

4.0

I was disappointed that some of the silver dollars had rust on them. I switched over from Bradford hoping for a quality experience and was disappointed. I will not accept any more rusty coins. I would appreciate your response. Individual coins ordered before my 10 coin order were excellent. Quality is important to me and I think you also. Have a good day.

Pros

  • Recognized Brand

Cons

  • Poor Condition
