Introduced in 1878, the U.S. Mint's Morgan Silver Dollar series began its third and final decade of production in 1898, although it was revived for a final run in 1921. Over the course of the twenty-eight year series, the coin was minted in five different locations, resulting in ninety-seven distinct date and mint mark combinations. This 1898 Morgan Dollar is counted among a mintage of 5,884,000 coins struck from 0.7734 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver at the Philadelphia Mint (no Mint mark).
