Introduced in 1878, the Silver Morgan Dollar was the last US silver dollar to enjoy long-running production. The last silver dollar, the Peace Dollar, was issued in just 10 years in total. The Silver Morgan Dollar, however, was issued in 28 years. The design on the coins was not beloved at first, but collectors in the 20th and 21st centuries have enjoyed adding Silver Morgans to their collections. Right now, 1889-CC Silver Morgan Dollars in certified condition are available to purchase online at Silver.com.

The Carson City Mint issued Silver Morgan Dollars from 1878 when the series started until 1885. In 1886, all coining operations at the Carson City Mint ceased. The Silver Morgan Dollars and the US Eagles of the gold denomination were all halted. In 1889, coining resumed with only the Silver Morgan Dollars in production.
The obverse side of 1889-CC Silver Morgans comes with a left-profile effigy of Liberty. Designed in 1878 for the debut of this series, this effigy of Liberty comes with a Phrygian cap on her head, as well as a coronet crown and laurel wreath in her hair.
On the reverse field of 1889-CC Silver Morgan Dollars is a depiction of the heraldic eagle of the United States. Similar to other 19th-century versions of the heraldic eagle, this design shows a bald eagle clutching the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace in its talons. The design includes an oak-and-laurel wreath beneath the eagle with CC mint marks below the wreath and above the word DOLLAR at the bottom.
