It has been 122 years since the 1898-S Morgan Silver Dollars were produced with a quantity of 4,102,000. Designed by George T. Morgan, the origin of the Morgan Silver Dollar dates back to as far as 1878 when the first year of issue coins were being struck. The series had to be abruptly ended in 1904 when a serious shortage of silver arose. The Pittman Act which was passed in 1918 allowed for the U.S. government to buy and melt hundreds of millions of dollars worth of silver, which was the solution to our lack of silver, and thus allowed for the final year of production for the Morgan Silver Dollars to be extended further into the year 1921, this time including the Denver Mint as well. The aesthetics of the coins are stunning to say the least, with the obverse side having an image of Lady Liberty’s beautiful face surrounded by 13 stars that represents the original 13 colonies and the reverse side of the coin featuring a brave American Bald Eagle that is holding arrows with one talon and an olive branch in the other. The attention to detail is crucial to Morgan Silver Dollars and the reason why the price of the coins correlate so strongly with the quality or grade of the coin as well. This is why it’s remarkable to have the rare 1898-S Morgan Silver Dollar available in brilliant uncirculated condition, especially for only $405, which would cost approximately $1,000 more if you were to purchase this coin in a MS65 grade.
