The Silver Morgan Dollar has long been a favorite of modern-day US coin collectors. The Morgan Dollars were struck by the millions at the United States Mint between 1878 and 1904, with a final issue in 1921. Despite issuing millions of coins, countless Morgans were melted down in the 1900s and 1910s by the US Mint for restriking as other denominations or to be made into bullion bars. In the 1960s, a discovery was made in the vaults of the US Treasury that changed the landscape of Silver Morgan Dollar collecting forever. Today, Silver.com has a unique product available to you that can fill in all the gaps in the story of the Carson City Silver Morgan Dollars.
A 4th edition book, Carson City Morgan Dollars: Featuring the Coins of the GSA Hoard takes a deep dive into the history of not only the Carson City Mint, but also the Silver Morgan Dollars produced there and how so many wound up just sitting in Treasury vaults in uncirculated condition nearly a century after the Carson City Mint first issued the coins.
The Carson City Mint was in operation from 1870 to 1885 and again from 1889 to 1893. During its time in operation, the Carson City Mint would issue Silver Morgan Dollars from 1878 to 1885 and again during its final four years of coining from 1889 to 1893. Carson City Mint Morgan Dollars were long believed to be some of the rarest examples of Morgan Dollars from the 19th century. After all, Carson City issued the lowest volume of coins each year.
