About this Product

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!
