One of the most recognizable coins in US history, the Morgan Dollar continues to attract a wide range of collectors and investors. Of special interest are the Redfield Morgans, which were discovered in a secret hoard in 1974. Following an auction, the coins were placed in special holders, confirming them as coins from this specific hoard and enhancing their numismatic value significantly. Right now, Redfield 1888-S Silver Morgan Dollar Coins in certified condition are available to purchase online at Silver.com.

An eccentric businessman, LaVere Redfield devoted his life to making money. As he continued to accumulate wealth through the stock market and real estate, he began to assemble an impressive collection of silver dollars. He kept them in a secret compartment in his basement, and by the time of his death in 1974, hundreds of bags of dollars had been accumulated. The coins were discovered by his heirs and later sold off in an auction for $7.3 million.

Each of these 1888-S Silver Morgan Dollar Coins was struck at the San Francisco branch of the United States Mint. The coins were later found in the Redfield Hoard and placed in special holders. While NGC has certified these coins, they chose to keep them in their original cases and applied a seal across the front of the holder with the grading details.

The obverse of 1888-S Silver Morgan Dollars features a bust of Lady Liberty. Designed by George T. Morgan, this portrait captures Liberty in left-profile relief and wearing both a Phrygian cap and a crown of wheat. Decorative stars and inscriptions reading E Pluribus Unum, 1888 are also featured on the obverse.

On the reverse face of these Silver Morgan Dollar Coins, a bald eagle is depicted. This heraldic design is also credited to Morgan and represents a simpler, more elegant take on the eagle found on the US Seal. We also see inscriptions on the reverse reading United States of America, In God We Trust, and One Dollar.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
