Morgan Silver Dollars

Morgan Silver Dollars, struck from 1878 until 1921, are one of the most popular large Silver Dollars released by the United States Mint. Designed by the legendary George T. Morgan, these coins would have circulated during the days of the American frontier. This category generally features a wide variety of Morgans, both raw and graded. Some of these vintage Morgan Dollars feature special pedigrees like the Great Montana Collection or the remarkable New York Bank Hoard pedigree.  These Morgan Silver Dollars are also available in various sets featuring coins from a specific mint, like the world famous Carson City facility, the rough-and-tumble New Orleans Mint or the fabled Gray Lady herself, the San Francisco Mint.

The Peace Dollar and Vintage Commemorative Coins

Other vintage silver coins include the iconic Peace Dollar, available in circulated grades through raw and third party-graded Mint State examples. Designed by Anthony de Francisci, these classic silver dollars saw America go from a booming economy in the 1920s to the depths of the Great Depression in 1935. This category will also feature a stunning selection of Classic American silver commemoratives dating from 1892 when the coins of the Columbian Exposition were struck to the final classic U.S. vintage silver commemorative the 1954 half dollar celebrating Booker T. Washington and George W. Carver. Of course, GovMint also offers all the other halves in the series, including the classic coins commemorating the Oregon Trail, Stone Mountain, the American Sesquicentennial and others, as market conditions allow.

Vintage Coins Sets

In addition to offering historic silver dollars, this category is also where you will find vintage sets commemorating a specific year or historical event, like the Korean War, World War 2 or the Stock Market Crash of 1929.  These sets will consist of coins that circulated at the time giving collectors a feel for what the average American had in their pocket at the time. These sets could consist of 90% circulating silver coins and the corresponding copper cents and nickels circulating at the time.  These iconic coins tell the story of America through the ages.
