For your consideration, we have a fine silver King of the Carson City Dollars. This coin weighs 1 ounce.
Silver and Morgan Dollars! Words that work magic on collectors and anyone who has ever held these big shiny silver coins in their hands. Morgan silver dollars essentially tell the story of mountain men. Pioneers and prospectors who opened up the West, and the families who settled the open prairies altogether. Nicknamed “King of America’s Coins” these big, heavy 90% silver coins were struck using ore gleaned from rich western mine. Similarly, the Comstock Lode, which yielded $36 million annually at its peak! Large, handsome, and weighing over 3/4 of an ounce, it’s easy to see why these historic silver dollars have markedly earned the nickname “King of America’s Coins”!
The magnificent Morgan dollar was struck for 27 years, from 1878 through 1904, and one final time in 1921. As we move further into the 21st century, more people collect Morgan silver dollars than at any other time. Yet, unlike the beginning of the 20th century, there are no more large hoards. These huge caches were dispersed decades ago, and millions of Morgans disappeared into private collections where they could remain for years overall. That makes locating Morgans with eye appeal more difficult today.
This King of the Carson City Dollars is the perfect coin for any collection!
