The introduction of the Silver Morgan Dollar in 1878 marked the end of a five-year period in which no fresh silver dollars were minted in the United States. Not only did the debut of the Silver Morgan Dollar bring back silver dollar coining in the US, but it also meant the debut of a new design for the silver dollar.

All four branch facilities of the US Mint operating from 1878 to 1904 participated in the coining of Silver Morgan Dollars. The Philadelphia Mint and San Francisco Mint were the only mints to strike the coins in each of the aforementioned date marks. The New Orleans Mint was the next most prominent among the mints as it struck the coins in every year but one, 1878.
The Carson City Mint struck the coins from 1878 to 1885, and again from 1889 until its closure in 1893. The Philadelphia Mint never issued mint marks on the coins it struck. The other mints issued S, O, and CC mint marks on the reverse of the coins above the word DOLLAR. Please note that we cannot guarantee what mint marks, if any, will be present on the coins you receive.
The obverse of Silver Morgan Dollars in this 5-Coin Set depicts Lady Liberty. This effigy of Liberty offers a left-profile portrait of her figure wearing a coronet crown, wreath, and Phrygian cap with 13 stars in the design element.
On the reverse side of the coins in the Silver Morgan Dollar 5-Coin Set, you will find an image of the heraldic eagle. This design was also created by George T. Morgan and features a bald eagle in front-facing relief with the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace.
These Silver Morgan Dollar 5-Coin Sets come with individual plastic slabs for each of the five coins and a Mint State 64 certification for each from the PCGS. Coins in this condition showcase average mint luster, a few scattered hairlines or one small patch of hairlines, and light, scattered contact marks that may or may not be in the primary focal fields.
