The release of Silver Morgan Dollars at the United States Mint took course over a period of 1878 to 1904, and once again in 1921. During this period of time, the US Mint used five branch mint facilities to issue the coins. The Denver Mint issued the coins the fewest number of times, just once in 1921. However, the Carson City Mint had the next lowest number of issues. Now, 1884-CC Silver Morgan Dollars are available to you for purchase online from Silver.com in certified condition.

The Carson City Mint was founded in 1863 and began issuing coins for the US Mint in 1870. As a primary role, the Carson City Mint stuck to issuing mostly silver denominations for the US Mint. The US Mint had purpose-built the Carson City Mint branch to take advantage of local sources of silver found in the American West, particularly the Comstock Lode in Nevada.
When it comes to the Morgan Dollars, the Carson City Mint issued the coins from 1878 to 1885. Following a three-year pause in production from 1886 to 1888, the Carson City Mint resumed striking Silver Morgan Dollars in 1889 and would continue to do so until 1893 when the branch mint closed permanently.
Liberty features on the obverse of 1884-CC Silver Morgan Dollars. This left-profile relief shows Liberty wearing a Phrygian cap with a coronet and laurel wreath in her hair. The design field also includes 13 stars, six on one side of Liberty’s bust and seven on the other side.
An American bald eagle is found in the reverse design of the 1884-CC Silver Morgan Dollar Coins. This design, as well as the obverse image, comes from George T. Morgan and was created in 1878. The American bald eagle is featured here in front-facing relief with the arrows of war in one talon and the olive branch of peace.
