Some of the most sought-after Silver Morgan Dollars from the 19th and early 20th centuries are the coins struck by the Carson City Mint. The Carson City Mint had some of the lowest production figures for Morgan Dollars and only struck the coins over the course of 13 years, which is less than half the production span of the entire series.

The Carson City Mint was one of three purpose-built branch mints in the US Mint system in the 19th century. The previous two mints of this kind, the Charlotte Mint and Dahlonega Mint on the East Coast, were built to use local sources of gold in producing US Eagle coinage. The Carson City Mint was authorized in 1863 and opened in 1870 with the expressed purpose of using silver from local sources in Nevada during the 1870s and 1880s. As such, one of its primary purposes was the production of Silver Morgan Dollars.
All of the Silver Morgan Dollar 7-Coin Sets available here come with seven coins in total with dates representing the following years: 1878, 1880, 1881, 1882, 1883, 1884, and 1885. You will receive one of each date mark in your set. The coins are packaged in Government Services Administration hard plastic holders with a box and Certificate of Authenticity included for each.
Please keep in mind that the GSA packaged these coins several decades ago in the 1960s and 1970s. The plastic holders, boxes, and Certificate of Authenticity may show signs of normal wear and tear. Additionally, the COA may or may not identify the coin as an UNCIRCULATED silver dollar.
Lady Liberty features on the obverse side of all Silver Morgan Dollars. This design was created by George T. Morgan with Anna Willess Williams sitting as the model for his portrait of Liberty. The Heraldic Eagle of the United States is found on the reverse side of Silver Morgan Dollars. The image shows the bald eagle in front-facing relief as it clutches the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace.
