Morgan Silver Dollar History
The Morgan dollar coin was minted from 1878 to1904. It was the first silver minted coin since the Seated Liberty dollar was produced. The Coinage Act of 1873 had banned the production of silver coins, shifting the economy to mainly support the gold standard. It took another act of congress for this coin to be minted. The Morgan dollar came to be after lobbyists with mining interests persuaded congress to pass the Bland-Allison Act. The Bland-Allison Act required the mint to purchase a few million dollars’ worth of silver at the market value and press some of it into coins each month.
The Bland-Allison Act was then canceled and the Sherman Silver Purchase Act took its place. The Sherman Silver Act made it so that the mint was then asked to purchase 4,500,000 troy oz., or about 140,000 kg, of silver each month but to only produce the silver dollar for one more year. By 1893, the Sherman Silver Act was no longer in place. In 1898, congress again required the mint to produce silver coins, turning them into dollars with all remaining silver bullion that had previously been purchased. In 1904, the silver stock was depleted, and the Morgan dollar was no longer coined. The Morgan dollar was minted one last time in 1921, when congress passed the Pittman Act. This act allowed for the melting of previously minted silver coins.
In the 1960s, the U.S. Treasury was surprised when it found a large amount of Morgan dollars sitting in a vault that had never been issued. This included issues of the Morgan dollar that were once perceived to be vary rare. They were then sold to the public at face value, and the Treasury stopped issuing silver certificates for silver coins.
The Morgan dollar was named for its designer, George T. Morgan. The image depicted on one side of the coin is a profile representing Liberty. The reverse side is an image of an eagle with outstretched wings.
