Why add this 1879 Morgan Silver Dollar to your collection?

In 1879, the U.S. Mint began its second year of production of the Morgan Silver Dollar series. The series is named for its designer George T. Morgan, an assistant engraver at the time, who became the Mint's 7th Chief Engraver in 1917. The series was produced for a total of twenty-eight years, at five different Mints, resulting in a staggering ninety-six unique date and Mint mark combinations.

  • This 1879 Morgan Dollar was struck from 0.7734 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver at the Philadelphia Mint.
  • The coin was released in the series' second year of issue.
  • The silver dollar measures 38.1 mm in diameter.
  • Final mintage is recorded as 14,806,000 coins.

Reverse: An eagle holding an olive branch and three arrows is centered on the reverse, surrounded by a laurel wreath tied with a ribbon. The inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "ONE DOLLAR" accompany the image.
