So- What exactly IS a “Proof-Like” Morgan Dollar?

When it comes to Morgan silver dollars, you simply cannot beat the quality of the rare Proof-Like pieces. They are some of the most beautifully struck coins in the entire world! But I am sure you are asking: just what are “Proof-Like” Morgan Dollars?

Proof-Like coins are extremely rare, high quality, coin specimens that are a direct result of the coin minting process used by the United States Mint. You see, when the U.S. Mint puts a coin die into production, they first polish the die ... this polishing puts a special luster on the first handful of coins that are struck using this new die. These rare pieces have the visual luster of a proof coin, but were still only struck once like all uncirculated coinage from the United States Mint, hence the nickname "Proof-Like." These coins are the finest examples of Morgan Dollars in existence and, as some of the rarest pieces in the Morgan Dollar series, are a must-have for any serious collector’s Morgan Dollar collection!
