The Last Morgan. The Last Silver Certificate. Together in One Set!
The headline says it all – this two-piece set marks the end of a pair of important eras in U.S. currency: The last Morgan Silver Dollar and the last series of $1 Silver Certificates. History may have closed the book on these two eras, but collectors have those pages bookmarked as red-letter days of particular significance for American money.
- In 1921 the U.S. Mint struck its last Morgan Silver Dollar – a 90% fine silver coin struck from 1878 to 1904 and again for one final time in 1921. In its heyday during the late 1800s. The Morgan sat in the dusty saddlebags of the Wild West. It was struck from the silver that poured forth from Nevada’s famous Comstock Lode. Millions of Morgan were melted down for their precious silver content leading coin experts to believe that as little as 15% of ALL Morgans in ANY condition remain in existence! The Morgan Silver Dollar available in this offer comes in Extremely Fine (XF) condition with lots of nice detail.
- In 1957, the last series of $1 Silver Certificates was issued – the first note to bear the words “In God We Trust,” it could be traded at any bank for a hefty silver dollar. The motto appeared thanks to a bill signed into law in 1955 by President Dwight Eisenhower that required it to appear on all U.S. currency. Nearly identical to a standard U.S. dollar bill, it features the familiar face of President George Washington, a distinctive blue Treasury seal, and the key words: ONE DOLLAR IN SILVER PAYABLE ON DEMAND. The note available in this offer comes in lightly circulated Very Fine (VF) condition.
