The Morgan dollar is thought by many to be one of America's greatest and most elegant coins. After enjoying a lifespan on the American currency market of more than 40 decades this coin was last minted in the 1920s and has since become quite a collector's item. The Morgan is not particularly hard to find but that is not what makes it so popular among coin collectors. It is the coin's beauty that has made it a must-have piece. That elegance, size and shine to a mint-condition Morgan silver dollar make it just as useful in a collector's case as in a pendant on a necklace for showing off.
The Morgan is a silver coin used as one-dollar pieces in the American economy for the duration of its run. It was minted in a time when all American coins utilized high-priced pure metals, in this case pure silver. As far as design goes the Morgan is pure Americana. On the front is the unmistakably classic etching of Lady Liberty while on the back is the American bald eagle with outstretched wings. These are the designs that would shape the future of coinage in the US and much of the reason, along with the pure silver makeup, why the Morgan silver dollar is so respected amongst coin collectors.
Collectors can choose from a variety of ways to show off their Morgan silver dollar. Serious collectors often opt for "mint" versions of the coin. These are perfect condition sealed coins that have not been put into circulation since their creation. They are as perfect a condition as a minted coin could get and often the most expensive of any collectible versions. Mint versions of the Morgan silver dollar are available from collector companies in a variety of sets including first and last issued year, a specific year of significance or even the entire collection, one coin for every year of minting. Less traditional collectors who appreciate the Morganís beauty may also choose to have it mounted in jewelry. The size of the Morgan and its brilliant polished silver appearance make it perfect for ensconcing in a silver pendant frame to wear on a necklace or in the outer shell of a pocket watch case. Whichever method of display you choose the decision to acquire and show off a Morgan silver dollar will put you among the knowledgeable and elite of coin collectors nationwide.
