The Morgan Silver Dollar is one of the most famous U.S. silver coins. Morgans were produced between 1878 and 1904, returning briefly in 1921 when the Denver Mint was authorized to produce a one-year mintage. All told, production of the Morgan Silver Dollar spanned five decades, creating what is arguably the most beloved - and most collected - silver dollar in American history. Though created underpressure from the silver lobby, it found immediate favor with collectors, investors, and the general public.
English engraver George T. Morgan was responsible for the design, which depicted a youthful Lady Liberty on the obverse, and an eagle in flight, clutching an olive branch and several arrows - representing both the country's military and diplomatic might - on the reverse.
Rare 1878 Morgan Dollars in Mint State (MS) condition have been known to fetch more than $12,000 at auction. With this authentic reproduction, you can have your own Morgan Dollar at a fraction of the cost. Our product faithfully captures the look and feel of the original 1878 Morgan Dollar.
Available exclusively from American Mint, this magnificent proof is meticulously reproduced from the highly coveted 1878 Morgan Silver Dollar. Minted to the highest quality "Proof" standard, it comes encased in our NumiShield Protective Case to protect it for future generations of coin aficionados.
The U.S. Mint altered the design of the Morgan Dollar four times during its first year of production in 1878. The earliest examples depict the eagle on the reverse with eight tail feathers - a biological impossibility. Further revisions altered the arrows' fletching, among other small details. Our reproduction is based on the more accurate seven-feather design while retaining other characteristics of the 1878 coin.
This 1878 Morgan Dollar Proof is coated with a layer of .999 pure silver and sold in a premium NumiShield case to preserve its luster for years to come.
