Beschrijving

The Morgan dollar was created in response to the passage of the Bland-Allison Act of 1878. After the five year depression following the Panic of 1873, so-called "Silverites" proposed a bimetallic standard that would see silver coined into dollars at the former gold/silver ratio of 16:1. The Silverites felt that this act would help to re-inflate the dollar after the Panic of 1873.

George T. Morgan, an assistant engraver at the Philidelphia Mint produced the winning design for the dollar, hence it is referred to by his name. Anna Willess Williams stond model voor Morgan als Lady Liberty. Hij zei dat haar profiel het meest perfecte was die hij ooit had gezien.

De Morgan zilveren dollar werd van 1878 tot 1904 geproduceerd en kwam een jaar terug in de productie in 1921. The Morgan dollars were produced with ninety percent silver and ten precent copper in order to conform with the coinage act of 1837. In 1962 a silver certificate was partially redeemed for an uncirculated Morgan dollar, which set off a firestorm of interest in redeeming silver certificates to the US Treasury. Demand was huge, with some in lines pushing wheelbarrows. Several million uncirculated Morgan and Peace dollars were eventually discovered in vaults and sold off to the public.

These Morgan dollars are average circulated coins. They typically have wear on the coin. Some traces of mint luster may still exist. We have limited numbers of these available.
