1884-S Morgan Silver Dollar

1884-S Morgan Silver Dollar

The 1884-S Morgan Silver Dollar had a total of 3.2 million mintage produced at the San Francisco Mint. The 1884-S Morgan Dollar is believed to have been released immediately into circulation which strayed from the norm for much of the Morgan Dollar series. There aren’t as many known uncirculated coins on the market for the 1884-S Morgan Silver Dollar, and some of this could be due to large amounts of silver being melted down under the provisions of the Pittman Act of 1918. 


History of the 1884-S Morgan Silver Dollar

The 1884-S Morgan Silver Dollar was minted at San Francisco, and is a prized coin in higher grades. This sometimes elusive coin was designed by George T. Morgan, and consists of Lady Liberty and 13 stars on the obverse, and the American Bald Eagle with an olive branch and arrows clenched in his talons. The 1884-S is more common in lower, circulated grades, and is difficult for collectors to find and afford in higher grades. If you come across a beautiful higher grade 1884-S Morgan Silver Dollar, it will be a valuable addition to your Morgan Dollar series collection. 


1884-S Morgan Silver Dollar Value

The 1884-S Morgan Silver Dollar Value ranges from the hundreds and upwards of five figures due to the elusiveness of uncirculated, higher grade coins. The 1884-S Morgan Silver Dollar worth might be more for this one due to supply not meeting the demand of the market. Mint State coins have sold for as high $735,000 which is an incredible price for a Morgan Dollar series coin to bring in.
