Dixieland Morgan Silver Dollar Mint Collection
Morgan Silver Dollars From the Heart of Dear Old Dixie
In the early 1800s, New Orleans was vital to the U.S. economy due to heavy commerce on the Mississippi and throughout the Gulf of Mexico. In fact, all of the nation's commerce west of the Appalachian Mountains moved on streams that led into the Mississippi, and almost half of the nation's produce passed through New Orleans to market. Steeped in history, the New Orleans Mint produced some of the most desired Morgan Silver Dollars in the entire series. Now you can acquire three O-Mint Morgans from three of the four decades the "Dixieland Mint" struck the coin. You'll receive an 1884-O Morgan, 1898-O Morgan and a 1901-O Morgan - each in stunning Brilliant Uncirculated condition. These "O" Mint Morgan Silver Dollars still remain among those most prized, and have always been especially popular in the South.
Along with the Charlotte and Dahlonega branch mints, the New Orleans Mint was one of three branch mints opened in the South prior to the Civil War. The New Orleans Mint opened in 1838 and struck coins until the start of the Civil War, when the Confederate army seized the building for military use. Louisiana troops used the captured government metal and dies to strike coins for the Confederacy until supplies ran out. The New Orleans Mint opened again in 1879, and minted its last coins in 1909.
