The Carson City Mint issued Silver Morgan Dollars in two waves during its history. The mint opened in 1870 and began coining Silver Morgans in 1878. The mint would issue Morgan Dollars from 1878 to 1885, enduring a pause in all of its coining from 1886 to 1888. In 1889, the Carson City Mint resumed coining, but was issuing only Silver Morgan Dollars and Gold Double Eagles for the US Mint.
All of these 1890-CC Silver Morgan Dollars are available to you for purchase in Mint State 62 condition. Coins in this condition have an impaired mint luster, several clusters of contact marks, and patches of small hairlines. The contact marks may be present throughout the design field of the coins, including within the primary focal fields.
On the obverse of 1890-CC Silver Morgan Dollar Coins is Lady Liberty. This left-profile effigy was created in 1878 by George T. Morgan and shows Liberty wearing a Phrygian cap, coronet crown, and a laurel wreath. There are also 13 stars around the lower edges of the design field.
The reverse side of the 1890-CC Silver Morgan Dollar features the heraldic eagle of the United States. Also designed by Morgan, this image includes a front-facing bald eagle with the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace in its talons. The design element is framed by a wreath of oak and laurel.
