Morgan Silver Dollar

Named after designer, George T. Morgan, the Morgan dollar was produced from 1878 to 1904, and again in 1921. The Morgan Silver Dollars came after the passing of the Bland-Allison Act of 1873 and signified the end of the free coinage of silver. Today, only an estimated 17% of Morgan Silver Dollars minted are surviving today. For this reason, they are incredibly popular and are some of the most highly collected silver coins.

The Morgan Silver Dollar features a portrait of Lady Liberty on the obverse, while the reverse depicts a bald eagle clutching arrows and an olive branch. Although they began production again in 1921, the Morgan Silver Dollars were replaced by the Peace dollar later the same year.
