US dollar coins can be made from gold, silver or other metals; though because the first minted dollar coins back in 1794 were made of silver, it’s common to refer to any composition white dollar coin as a ‘silver’ and the golden colored coins as ‘golden dollars.’ United States dollar coins are still minted, despite a low frequency of usage due to the prevalence of the dollar bill.
Morgan Silver Dollar
Undoubtedly one of the most common silver dollars, the Morgan silver dollar replaced the Seated Liberty dollar and was minted inconsistently between 1878 and 1921. The Morgan dollar derives its name from the designer of the coin, George T. Morgan. Morgan designed the obverse side of the Morgan coin to feature a profile of Lady Liberty with the reverse featuring an eagle with outstretched wings. At The Happy Coin we feature a large selection of silver Morgan dollars, including the extremely rare 1893 S Morgan Dollar. This silver dollar’s value far exceeds its face value both for its uniqueness and limited availability.
