Description:

This is a random date (1878-1921) Morgan Silver Dollar with unique toning that is certified by PCGS as MS64. These true heirlooms were issued a century ago from an historic U.S. Mint no longer in existence weighing 26grams and measuring 38mm in diameter and were made from Silver on the Comstock Lode. In 1972 Richard Nixon released these precious coins to collectors of our nation from a treasury vault. The Morgan Silver Dollar, now one of the most popular coins for U.S. collectors, was first minted in 1878 when silver mine owners lobbied the government to re-issue silver dollars - the mintage of which had been halted in 1873. To comply with the Bland-Allison Act, the U.S. Mint engaged a young designer, George T. Morgan, to design and engrave a new silver dollar. George Morgan, in turn, asked Anna W. Williams, a school teacher, to sit as a model for the Liberty Head on the obverse side of the Morgan Dollar.
