Morgan silver dollars were minted between 1878 and 1921, with a notable break between 1905 and 1920. The 1921-dated coins are the most common, and there exists a substantial collector market for pristine, uncirculated specimens of the rarer dates and mint marks.
Morgan dollars are second only to Lincoln Cents in collector popularity. The large size, design and inexpensive nature of most dates of the Morgan dollar make them highly popular. The coin is named after George T. Morgan, its designer.
This is a very affordable antique, a Historical Artifact of Americana – last year the Morgan Silver Dollar was minted. A time the Dollar was solidly backed by silver and carried credibility in the World of Trade.
