Minted in 1880 from the San Francisco mint, this Morgan Silver Dollar was professionally graded in MS64 by PCGS. Like other silver coins minted before 1965, the Morgan Silver Dollar was minted using 90% silver. The first silver dollar since the passage of the Coinage Act of 1873 prohibited the minting of the Seated Liberty dollar is the Morgan Silver Dollar. It was minted from 1878 to 1904 and for a single year in 1921. Named after the designer of the coin, George T. Morgan was a product of the Bland-Allison act. The reverse of the coin depicts an eagle with its wings spread wide. The obverse of the coin is a left-facing Liberty. The Morgan Silver Dollar is one of the most collectible coins in United States history. These coins were considered rare until 1962 when a stockpile was found in a vault at the Philadelphia Mint. The Morgan Silver Dollar has many different dates and varieties.
