The Morgan Dollar is one of the most storied coins in American history. Its origin can be traced to the discovery of the Comstock Lode during the late 1850’s in what is now Virginia City, Nevada, one of the largest silver strikes in history, and the political pressure for government intervention that followed the subsequent drop in global silver prices. In 1878, the United States Congress passed the Bland-Allison Act, requiring the Treasury Department to buy large amounts of silver – two to four million troy ounces a month – for the production of coins. The Treasury Department decided to strike dollar coins with the incoming silver and the Morgan Dollar was born.
Morgan Dollars were minted from 1878 through 1904, and again in 1921, in Philadelphia (no mintmark), San Francisco (“S” mintmark), New Orleans (“O”), Carson City, Nevada (“CC”), and Denver (“D”). Each Morgan is composed of .900 fine silver, yielding a total silver content of .77344 troy ounces per coin, and measures 38.1mm in diameter. The coins take their name from their designer, the British engraver George T. Morgan. Morgan recruited a Philadelphia schoolteacher named Anna Willess Williams to pose as Lady Liberty for the new design, and it is her portrait that occupies the obverse of the coins. The reverse, or back, of the coins displays a heraldic eagle holding the traditional American symbols denoting strength at peace and in war, a clutch of arrows and an olive branch, in its talons.

" I added one of the average circulated 1921 Morgans to my most recent order, and I am more than pleased with this coin. It's in great condition especially for the price. I wouldn't hesitate to order again. I'm more nostalgic than a stacker, and Provident makes owning a few of the old US silver coins easy. (Can order the smaller denominations in $1 FV quantities.) Amazingly fast shipping, too! Happy customer, many thanks. (Wish you offered e-check as a payment option.)"

" Probably cleaned but very pretty. I ordered 40 of them and was concerned they'd arrive loose. Provident threw in a couple tubes to hold them. Very happy camper."

" Just received a small order of the so-called-average, Morgan silver dollars, And I want to let all of you know, I have been buying for a very long time here, and never did buy the Average circulated Morgan dollars, but these are much better then being listed here as Average, Thats why I am back today to pick up more of the Morgan silver dollars, no matter how many times I order from Provident-Metals, every single order has proved to me to be the only place to do my business with with. I am very pleased with every order I place, and receive from Provident metals. Thanks again Provident people for all the great Items and fast shipping you do for your customers !!! "

" I ordered 14 of these coins, and I have to say I am very pleased! They all came with different degrees of toning, and while I was nervous about getting circulated coins, I have to say they all look great! Some have more toning than others, but that really gives each coin some character. I am very happy with my purchase and cannot wait to order more!"
