The Morgan

The Morgan Dollar is considered by many to be the "true" coin of the fabled Wild West, partially due to its colossal failure to circulate well in the North and the East. Made of out nearly 1 full ounce of .900 pure silver from the famous Comstock Lode silver discovery in Nevada, which sparked the silver rush of 1859. It was struck from 1878 through 1904, and then again for one final year in 1921.

In addition to a short production period, and minimal circulation, many of these coins are no longer in existence due to the Pitman Act of 1918, which resulted in the melting down of almost 300 million Morgans!

What is a "Rainbow" Morgan Dollar?

When collector's store their coins, they place them in special holders, rolls, albums, drawers, etc. As these coins age within their collector's chosen method of storage, their packaging and environment slowly colorize the coins. This colorization results in multiple, unique coins all bearing the "Rainbow Effect" featuring all the different colors of the spectrum. Most "Rainbow" Morgan Silver Dollars are colorized on only one side while a select few were stored in just the right conditions to result in the "Rainbow Effect" on both sides of the coin.
