1897-P Morgan Silver Dollar NGC/PCGS MS64
Low-Mintage 1897-P Morgan Silver Dollar
What an oddity! In 1897 the San Francisco, New Orleans and Philadelphia Mint all struck Morgan Silver Dollars, with Philadelphia striking one to three million less than the other two. But despite being the smallest mintage of the year, and a small mintage on its own (just 2.822 million struck), the 1897-P Morgan remains the most affordable of the three! It’s also in great condition, coming in Choice Uncirculated Mint State-64 (MS64) condition graded by either the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) or the professional Coin Grading Service PCGS). A great find for any collection! Grading service varies.
With its place and history combined with its high grade and the fact that as little as 15% of all Morgans still exist in any condition and you have a piece of America’s past you can’t afford to miss! Add the 1897-P Morgan Silver Dollar to your cart today!
- AMERICA’S MOST POPULAR AND COLLECTED COIN – Designed by U.S. Mint Engraver George T. Morgan, the Morgan Silver Dollar was struck from 1878 to 1904 and again in 1921. Today it is one of the most popular and heavily collected of all United States coins.
- 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 in Nevada – and measure 38.1 mm in diameter.
- LEGAL TENDER AMERICAN COINAGE – Each Morgan Silver Dollar was one dollar legal tender.
- INCREDIBLE UNCIRCULATED CONDITION – Your 1897-P Morgan Silver Dollar comes certified and graded by either the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) or the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) as being in Choice Uncirculated Mint State-64 (MS64) condition.
- THE CASE OF THE DISAPPEARING MORGAN – Despite millions of Morgan Silver Dollars being struck from 1878-1921, most were lost in circulation or melted down in mass silver meltings. In fact, coin experts believe that only 15% of all Morgans ever struck remain in existence today.
1897 marked one of the final years that the U.S. Mint released Morgan Silver Dollars – among the most sought-after collector coins in America. Struck from silver mined from the legendary Comstock Lode, these 90% silver coins are becoming harder and harder to find today. Act now to add this key-date coin to your collection.
