Classic U.S. Silver Dollars
Common date U.S. U.S. silver dollars are a superb way to buy silver. Although called "common dates," these classic U.S. silver coins coins are actually quite scarce. Of the many millions originally minted, the vast majority were lost in circulation or melted down, first because of the Pittman Act in 1918 and later during the great silver booms of the 1960s and 1980s. Precious few remain, especially in the Mint State (MS) grades we offer below.
Minted between 1878 and 1904, and again in 1921, at four U.S. mints (Philadelphia, New Orleans, San Francisco, and Carson City), Morgan silver dollars were the backbone of daily commerce for decades and remain the quintessential U.S silver coin for many collectors. U.S. Peace silver dollars were minted from 1921 to 1935 in Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco, and were the last U.S. silver dollar to be struck from real silver. Both of these inspiring designs hearken back to America’s emergence as a true world power.
Scarcity, grade, quality, and price are the main determinants of the value of classic silver dollars. All of our certified silver dollars are hand-selected for outstanding in-grade technical merit and eye-appeal by our expert numismatists, and are certified for grade and authenticity by either PCGS or NGC, the most trusted independent certification companies in the industry.
