How Being Locked Up for Decades Saved this Classic Carson City Silver Dollar for You

In the 1960s, the U.S. Treasury did an audit of Silver Dollars that had been stored in their vaults for nearly a century. What they found sent the collector world reeling. Bags and bags of fresh never-circulated Carson City Mint Morgans. Beginning in October 1972, the coins were sold sealed in some of the very first plastic coin "slabs." Over the 30+ years since the sale, most of the coins were broken out of the slabs. Today, they are very hard to find in original packaging. We're pleased to offer a small cache of these Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) 1884-CC Morgans to you today. And every one is still in its original government packaging. But call fast—our small supply won't last. It's American history locked away and saved for you and your family!

Year of Issue 1884
Country United States
Composition Silver
A state of preservation used to describe coins that never circulated in the channels of commerce, i.e. a coin without any wear from circulation.
Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) coins are freshly minted coins that have seen absolutely no general circulation. These coins are either produced specifically for collectors or have been gathered and preserved immediately after production. These coins have tremendous mint luster that give distinct definition to every detail along with luminescent fields.
Treasury Hoard
For years, the United States Government kept bags and bags of mint-fresh uncirculated Morgan and Peace Silver Dollars in U.S. Treasury vaults. In the early 1960s, the government decided to sell off their supply of these coins. What culminated next was a silver buying frenzy by collectors who traveled from all over the country to purchase these silver dollars in Washington D.C. For coin collectors, it was every bit as exciting as the California Gold Rush of 1849. Collectors lined up for blocks around the Treasury building and "prospectors" quickly sorted through their newly acquired Morgan Silver Dollars, looking for any rare dates and mintmarks. This monumental release became known as The Treasury Hoard, and it was the largest single release of silver dollars in history.
Currency Type Dollar
Mint Name
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.
