Legislative Background

The U.S. Mint produced Morgan dollars in the period between 1878 and 1904, and again in 1921. Morgan dollars replaced the Seated Liberty dollar, which was abolished in 1873 following a long debate around the use of silver bullion as legal tender.

However, the free coinage of silver soon regained political support. In 1876, the passage of the Bland-Allison Act required the Treasury to purchase a minimum of two million dollars' worth of silver per month and put it into circulation in the form of dollar coins.

Minting and Design History

Morgan dollars are named after their designer, George Morgan, an English-born engraver employed with the U.S. Mint. Morgan's design featured the image of Lady Liberty on the obverse and an eagle on the reverse, and was immediately put into production at the Mint's Philadelphia, Carson City, and San Francisco facilities.

Investing in Morgan Dollars

Morgan dollars are a good choice for anyone interested in silver, although they tend to be considered collectible items rather than investment products. You can visit our Investor Library to learn more.
