Product description

Product Information
If collecting rare coins is your hobby, then make a value additionto your collection with the 1884 Morgan Dollar. Made up of 90 percent silver and 10 percent copper, this Morgan Dollar is 38.1 mm in diameter and weighs 26.73 grams. Tracing its origins back to the Mint Act of 1873 and the Bland-Allison Act of 1878, this silver dollar has deep historical roots. Named after its designer, George T. Morgan, the 1884 Morgan Dollar is a part of the Morgan Dollar series, which was minted from 1878 to 1904, and then again in 1921. Interestingly, as a representation of liberty, this silver dollar depicts an American woman, presumably Miss Anna W. Williams, a schoolteacher from Philadelphia, instead of the usual Greek figure. This Morgan Dollar gives you a chance to own an everlasting piece of history!

1884 Morgan Dollar

The 1884 Morgan Dollar was manufactured by all four U.S. Mints that were in operation. The silver dollar was an extremely controversial coin at this time because of the terrible inflation. Many people demanded paper money or gold coins, because the actual silver contents of the dollar coin was only about 55c, and they were bulky and heavy. By the terms of Bland-Allison Act, the Treasury was required to purchase between two and four million dollars worth of silver at market value every month. This was legislation designed to protect the interests of wealthy silver miners and not the American people. This resulted in the minting of hundreds of millions of coins, many of which were simply being stored. About 28,000,000 silver dollar coins were produced in 1884 in total. Of this total, just less than 24,000,000 were produced by the Philadelphia and New Orleans mints. Even today, average uncirculated coins from these two mints are worth little, $40-$70, and in circulated grades, just basic bullion value. However, the coins produced at the Carson City mint were mostly stored until the mid 1960's. Prior to their release, they were thought to have been smelted and were considered to be very scarce. A total of 1,136,000 coins were produced, but 962,000 pieces were not released until 1964. These coins are currently worth between $120-$300. The really important coin from 1884 is the San Francisco coin. A total of 3,200,000 pieces were produced, and virtually all were put into circulation. Although there are many, very high grade, but lightly circulated coins still in existence, true uncirculated coins are rare. This, along with the scuffing and bagmarking that naturally occurs during the handling of the 1000 coin bags, makes those coins that are fully struck and relatively unmarked, extremely rare and valuable. Any basic mint state (MS60) 1884-S, Morgan Dollar is worth at least $7000, and a high-grade (MS65) specimen could easily fetch a price of $200,000 or more at auction!

This is a piece of American history. Close your eyes for a moment and try to imagine who may have held this coin. Was it a merchant, a business man, or may be even a President. It is also piece of art not found in todays coins. Also, a great way to hedge inflation with hard currency.

THRILLING MORGAN VALUES

 | Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

REGARDING THE YEAR '1884' morgan dollar. THIS YEAR OF THE MORGAN DOLLAR IS ONE OF VERY FEW YEARS THAT ANOTHER MINT OUTSHINES THE CARSON CITY MINT. THE 'S' MINT OF THIS YEAR COMMANDS HIGHER VALUE PRICING THAN 'CC'. I DO NOT KNOW THE REASON THAT MINT STATE GRADES FAR EXCEED THE SAME GRADES OF THE 'CC' MINT. NEARLY THREE TIMES AS MANY 'S' MINT COINS WERE PRODUCED AS THAT OF THE 'CC' MINT. THE MORGAN DOLLAR IS ONE OF THE MOST DETAILED OF ALL COINS OF THE U.S. THESE DOLLARS SEEM TO HOLD HIGHER VALUE THAN OTHERS. THE 2013 RED BOOK HAS MARKED A DECLINE IN VALUE TO SOME MORGANS. I DO NOT HAVE ANY IDEA WHY. A FINE INVESTMENT FOR ANY ONE.

One Fine S mint Morgan Dollar

 | Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Created: 11/06/12
I bought this coin as I have a collection of San Francisco minted Morgan dollars which are not graded (yet), and I believe to have AU or better quality. This coin fit in nicely to my collection as it is hard to find a truly uncirculated 83 or 84 S Morgan Dollar without paying a million bucks. I bid the best way I know how and won this coin in a truly hard fought battle. When I received it, I thought it to be just as described and it looked nice with the rest of my coins. I hope to add more like this to my collection in the future. This coin is one of the better coins for the year it was issued I have seen.
