Rare, Beautiful, and a Collector Favorite!

Morgan Silver Dollars are among the most collected vintage coins in the world. Weighing in at a robust 26.73 grams with a diameter of 38.1 mm, they are big and beautiful – and also increasingly rare. According to numismatic author Q. David Bowers, as low as 15% of the total Morgan mintage from 1878 to 1921 remains in any condition. Far fewer remain of the San Francisco 1887 Morgan Silver Dollar, as comparatively few Morgans were struck in the "City by the Bay." Further, all San Francisco-minted coins are known as being exceptionally well-struck, so no matter what its grade, a coin produced at this western-most mint is a proven beauty.

The obverse of the Morgan Silver Dollar was designed by George T. Morgan, 7th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint. It features a bust of Lady Liberty, her head circled by stars, and its inscriptions include "LIBERTY," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and the date 1887. The coin's reverse is equally well-known, depicting an eagle with its wings outstretched and clutching an olive branch and arrows in its talons. Also on the reverse are the words "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "ONE DOLLAR," the phrase "IN GOD WE TRUST" in archaic lettering, and the "S" mint mark, indicating your coin was struck at the San Francisco mint. Graded MS63 by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS), your coin will arrive in mint, uncirculated condition with very few marks, a prized addition to your collection. Get yours today!

San Francisco - S
Established in 1853 to strike coins from California’s newly-discovered vast reserves of gold, the San Francisco branch of the United States Mint is famous for the quality, lustrous Morgan Silver Dollars produced at "The Granite Lady" from 1878 to 1921. After moving to a new building in 1937, coin production at the San Francisco mint shut down in 1955. A shortage caused regular coin production to resume in 1965. While the mintage of circulating coins ceased in 1981, proof coins and commemoratives are still struck at the San Francisco Mint today.
