Morgan Dollars

The first Morgan Dollars were struck on March 11, 1878, less than two weeks after the coin was authorized by Congress and was minted until 1921. While most of the Morgan Dollars were minted in Philadelphia, a small mint was established in Carson City, Nevada to also press the coins near the source. The mine, however, played out shortly thereafter and the Carson City mint closed forever in 1893. The Morgan Dollars minted in Carson City are rare and highly collectible today.

Production of the coins stopped in 1904, after the statuary 25-year run for a coin design. In 1918, more than 270 million Morgan Dollars were melted down to provide war-time silver for Great Britain. In 1921 another 86 million Morgan Dollars were coined but production was halted in 1922 for the commemorative Peace Dollar to mark the end of World War I.

The coins weigh 26.73 grams (.859 troy ounces) and they are 90% silver and 10% copper, so each coin contains 0.77344 troy ounces of silver.
