The First Year in Carson City

The vast deposits of silver found in Nevada’s Comstock Lode were shipped to mints around the country to be struck into Morgan Silver Dollars. But the shortest trip of them all was from the mines just down the road to the Carson City Mint! The 1878-CC Morgan Silver Dollar is the first-year-of issue both for the coin and the mint. Only 2.2 million were struck in 1878 in Carson City. Both the Philadelphia and San Francisco Mints struck four times as many that year! We found a small hoard graded by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS), and even though it’s only 83 coins, that’s actually a large number to find all at once. Not only that, these will disappear fast. We are pleased to give you the opportunity to snap one or more up while they’re available. The Carson City Mint struck Morgan Silver Dollars between 1878 and 1893. Less than 2% of all Morgan Silver Dollars produced were struck at Carson City! That makes these first year coins even more desirable. They’re a great tribute to the craftsmen at the mint and show sharp crisp designs and super fresh mint luster. Each is a superior example graded by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) and they all display the coveted “CC” mintmark on the reverse under the eagle. Each year these first-year “Comstock Lode” Morgans get harder and harder to find, so snap these up. Call now!

Carson City - CC
In need for a convenient location next to the rich deposits of silver in the Comstock Lode, the United States Mint opened the doors of its facility in the boomtown-turned-capital of Carson City in 1870. More than $49 million worth of gold and silver was produced, all with the distinctive "CC" mintmark, until the mint closed in 1899. Today, the mint serves as the Carson City location of the Nevada State Museum.
U.S. Mint
Created by the United States Congress through the Coinage Act of 1792, the United States Mint opened its first building in Philadelphia in 1793. Today, the U.S. Mint strikes circulating coins, as well as special collector coins and sets at the "Mother Mint" of Philadelphia and the branch mints of Denver, San Francisco and West Point.
