The United States Silver Morgan Dollar was the first standard silver dollar minted since production of silver dollars ceased in 1873. The coin is named after its designer, United States Mint Assistant Engraver George T. Morgan. This coin offered here was minted in 1904, which marks the final year that Silver Morgans Dollars were minted.
Morgan’s design replaced a previous one called the Seated Liberty Dollar. This 1904 Silver Morgan carries no mark, meaning that it originated at the U.S. Mint of Philadelphia. The coin has a light ring of toning on the front and much heavier toning on the back.
The first cessation in silver minting came in 1873, due to the passage of the Coinage Act, which also ended the free coining of silver. In 1898, Congress approved a bill that required all remaining bullion purchased under the Sherman Silver Purchase Act to be coined into silver dollars. When those silver reserves were depleted in 1904, the Mint ceased to strike the Morgan dollar.
