Two C’s Make All the Difference

Back in 1890, the Philadelphia Mint struck nearly 17 million Morgan Silver Dollars. More than 2,600 miles away, the Carson City Mint struck a shade over 2 million. But that’s only part of the remarkable story of why the 1890 Carson City Morgan is so hard to find. You see, folks out East preferred paper dollars, so the coins from the Mother Mint in Philadelphia are much easier to find today in nice condition, as they tended to sit in bank vaults instead of in people’s pockets. But in the West, folks preferred money in the form of these hefty, 90% silver coins. The result was “hard currency” from the Carson City Mint exchanging hands frequently in commerce.

These were THE coins used by cowboys, gunfighters, saloon keepers and dance hall girls. Who knows where these coins traveled, in whose pockets they rested, or what kind of escapades they saw? Just imagine the history you can hold in your hands with one of these big vintage silver dollars struck in the heart of the Old West from the silver of the famous Comstock Lode in Virginia City – the richest silver mine in American history!

  • KEY DATE MORGAN SILVER DOLLAR– Your 1890-CC Morgan Silver Dollar was struck at the Carson City Mint. Morgans bearing the “CC” mint mark are valued by collectors because the Carson City Mint is the mint responsible for the smallest number of Morgans struck.
  • STRUCK IN FINE AMERICAN SILVER – Morgan Silver Dollars were struck in 26.73 grams of 90% silver – fine American silver mined from the famous Comstock Lode near Virginia City, Nevada – the richest silver mine in American history.
