140 Years Ago, The First Morgan Silver Dollar was Struck!
140 years ago, history was made when the first Morgan Silver Dollars were struck! No one knew then that the big, silver “cartwheels” would become the most beloved United States coins ever, but today, Morgan Silver Dollars are sought after by collectors all over the world. And now you have a special opportunity to get your very own piece of U.S. coinage history when you acquire the 1878 First Year of Issue Morgan Silver Dollar set.
The three Morgans in this set are among the last surviving originals struck at the three United States branch mints that were operating then. You’ll receive one coin from each of the following:
• Philadelphia Mint – Considered the “Mother Mint”, the Philadelphia Mint is our oldest Mint and has been striking coins since its founding in 1793. Philadelphia Mint Morgans do not have a mint mark on the reverse.
• San Francisco Mint – Morgans were struck at the Old San Francisco Mint, known throughout its storied career as the “Granite Lady”. Since the Old Mint closed in 1937, it has been remembered for the exceptional luster and quality of its strikes. Coins from San Francisco have an “S” mint mark on the reverse.
• Carson City Mint – Morgans from Carson City are some of the most sought after by collectors! Built to mint coins from the famed Comstock Lode – the largest silver strike in our history – Carson City produced Morgans for a mere 13 years, and only accounted for about 2% of all Morgans minted! They are distinguished by the desired “CC” mint mark on the reverse.
Each Morgan contains .77344 oz of pure silver, so increasing prices of precious silver make every Morgan more valuable. Plus, every coin in this special release is guaranteed to be in Fine or better condition, and to bear that all-important date, 1878. Each coin will be encapsulated to protect it, as coins of this historic significance should be, and come in a deluxe display case with Certificate of Authenticity.
Due to the extreme collectibility of these coins, supplies are limited, so act fast. Place your order now!
