U.S. Morgan Silver Dollars, Philadelphia “P” Mint
Gem Brilliant Uncirculated, MS 65 condition
U.S. Morgan Silver Dollars are the most popular and widely collected of all U.S. silver coins. Minted between 1878 and 1904, and again in 1921, in Philadelphia, New Orleans, San Francisco, and Carson City, these classic silver coins served as the backbone of daily commerce, both nationally and internationally, for decades.
Named after their designer, James T. Morgan, Morgan Silver Dollars are also known as Liberty Head dollars because of the radiant, dignified profile of Miss Liberty featured on the obverse. The reverse depicts the inspiring image of an American Eagle, standing tall with widespread wings, perched confidently upon the olive branch of peace and the arrows of military strength.
Ben Franklin, the Liberty Bell, and the first U.S. Mint
The Philadelphia Mint virtually embodies the history of the United States. In 1792, in one of its first official acts, Congress established the Mint in Philadelphia, the original capital city of our fledgling country and home to such genuine American icons as Ben Franklin and the Liberty Bell.
George Washington was so eager for the new Mint to succeed that he donated the silver for its first coin, a “half-disme” or half-dime, from his household silverware. David Rittenhouse, a leading American scientist and the first Director of the Mint, oversaw its production. None other than Thomas Jefferson hand-delivered the Mint’s first coin to the Father of our Country for his approval.
From this illustrious beginning, the Philadelphia Mint has grown into the most productive mint in world history, now with the capacity to produce 1.8 million coins an hour, 32 million coins per day, and 13.5 billion coins every year. The Philadelphia Mint also produces the dies used for stamping coins in all the U.S. Mints, and the Bronze Stars and Purple Hearts awarded to our military heroes.
Morgan Silver Dollars were struck at the Philadelphia Mint from 1878 to 1904 and again in 1921. Because Philadelphia was the only U.S. Mint until 1838, its coins carry no identifying mintmark.
Our are Morgan Silver Dollars are all dated in the 1800s and are the best of the best in Gem Brilliant Uncirculated, MS 65 condition. We hand select each coin for stunning eye appeal and outstanding technical merit.
