Morgan Silver Dollars
Morgan Silver Dollars  

 

American silver dollars minted from 1878 to 1921 are known as "Liberty Head" dollars or "Morgan" dollars after their designer, George T. Morgan. The coins have a rich history, having been in widespread use during the "wild west" days of the frontier and were minted from the large discoveries of American silver in the late 19th century.

Certified Morgan Silver Dollar
Certified Morgan Silver Dollar  

 

PCGS-graded coins come with written guarantees of a coin's authenticity and condition. Three professional graders must all agree on a coin's grade, and then their grade must be approved by a "finalizer." Afterwards, the coin is sealed in a hard plastic case with a unique 8-digit number and other identifying information.

Morgan silver dollars are among the more popular certified coins available. The coin pictured to the left is graded MS-65 on a 70 point scale, meaning it is in near-gem condition.
