Why purchase this Morgan Silver Dollar struck at the New Orleans Mint in 1902?
The Morgan Silver Dollar was a product of the U.S. Mint which featured designs by George T. Morgan, a former assistant British Royal Mint engraver who went on to become the seventh U.S. Mint Chief Engraver in 1917. Over the lifetime of the series, the Morgan Dollar was minted at five different Mint branches, struck for a total of twenty-eight non-consecutive years from 1878 until it was replaced by the Peace Dollar in 1921. This example is among those produced by the New Orleans Mint in 1902. The 38.1 mm diameter coin was struck from 0.7734 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver. Final mintage is reported to be 8,636,000.
