1890-CC Morgan Silver Dollar

1890-CC Morgan Silver Dollar

The 1890-CC Morgan Silver Dollar was typically minted at lower quantities. The batch of coins produced in 1890 was the highest amount minted at the Carson City Mint. After the Carson City Mint closed down, many of the coins remained there for a time until they were transported to the San Francisco Mint and the Treasury Department. Many were also released into circulation. Around 1942 and 1943, many of these stored bags were released from the San Francisco Mint, with the majority of them going into circulation, and just a small amount going to dealers and collectors. 


History of the 1890-CC Morgan Silver Dollar

The Treasury Department houses many of the Carson City coins at the time. Periodically, it would release bags of them, typically around the 1930s, into the 1940s. After the 1940s, payouts were slow until the 1950s when a large portion of uncirculated coins was released to dealers who had connections in the industry. The 1890-CC Morgan Silver Dollar is one of the most common worn grades of the Carson City coins, and many survived out in circulation. The 1890-CC Morgan Dollar is a well-made coin, with an average to sharp strike.
