The US silver dollar issued for the second-longest period of time was the Silver Morgan Dollar. After the end of free silver coining in the US in 1873, the Seated Liberty design was retired and the nation went five years without new silver dollars struck. The 1878 debut of the Silver Morgan Dollars restarted silver coining in the US. Today, certified Silver Morgan Dollar 5-Coin Sets are available to you online at Silver.com.

The Bland-Allison Act was passed by Congress in 1878 and authorized the introduction of a new US silver dollar. The act required the purchase of roughly $2 to $4 million worth of silver at market values to strike silver dollars each month. With the passage of this act and the start of silver buying at the US Treasury, the US Mint was able to introduce a new silver dollar design.
All of the Silver Morgan Dollar 5-Coin Sets are available to you for purchase with certification from the PCGS. Each one of the coins in this five-coin set comes with a Mint State 63 certification. Coins in this condition have slight impairments to the mint luster, small contact mark clusters or a smaller number of heavier contact marks, and small hairlines that are visible without the aid of magnification.
The Silver Morgan Dollars you receive in this set come with individual PCGS plastic slabs. Please keep in mind that you will not receive any matching date marks among your five coins. Each one will have a different date mark from the 1878-1904 production timeframe.
On the obverse of the Silver Morgan Dollars is a left-profile relief of Liberty. Anna Willess Williams sat as the model for George T. Morgan’s version of Lady Liberty. The portrait depicts Liberty with a Phrygian cap, a Liberty coronet crown, and a wreath crown.
The reverse side of Silver Morgan Dollars in this 5-Coin Set come with an image of the heraldic eagle of the United States. In George T. Morgan’s version of the heraldic eagle, the eagle is set in front-facing relief clutching the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace.
Silver Morgan Dollars were produced by a total of four mints from 1878 to 1904. During this period, only the Philadelphia Mint and San Francisco Mint struck the coins each year. The New Orleans Mint struck the coins from 1879 to 1904. The Carson City Mint issued the coins in the lowest numbers each year from 1878-1885 and again from 1889-1893. We do not guarantee which mint marks may or may not be present on the coins you receive.
