1878-1904 Morgan Silver Dollar XF (Random Year)

 

The huge quantity of silver yielded by the Comstock Lode, Nevada led to the birth of the Morgan Dollar. Designed by an English engraver, George T. Morgan, these coins are one of the most popular series. They were also minted in five different mints and baring different mintmarks except the one minted in Philadelphia, which does not have any mintmarks.

Design by George T. Morgan.

Detailed Information:

George T. Morgan is the designer of the Morgan Silver Dollars. He was just 30 years old and already a highly reputed engraver working in the British Royal Mint, when he was hired for the job of designing the Morgan Dollar. He was absorbed into the Philadelphia Mint and was given the position of assistant to Chief Engraver, William Barber. The US Mint Director Henry P. Linderman had ordered both men to produce pattern coins for the new silver dollar and the one he liked most was going to be used on the new coin.

When the two pattern coins were prepared, the mint director chose Morgan’s design and the coin was named after him as the Morgan Dollar. Although the mint director, liked the design, upon its release, the public did not receive the coin well. Some felt the Liberty looked obese and some felt the eagle looked scrawny. It was given several names like the Buzzard dollar or the Cartwheel dollar. However, today the coin is famous for its design and size.

Morgan inscribed his initial “M” on both the obverse and reverse, which is unique to the Morgan Dollars only in US Coinage. On the obverse it is on the truncation of the Liberty’s neck and on the reverse, it is on the ribbon’s left loop.

These coins were minted from 1878-1904 and for one last time in 1921. Over half a billion coins were struck from just 1878-1904. In total there are 96 different date and mint combinations. Since these coins were minted more than that was needed for circulation, huge stockpiles of these coins had sat in the Treasury vaults and also in the nationwide bank vaults.

The Morgan Dollar has so much history and so many stories to tell. It is one of the most sought after and very popular in today’s world.
