Own two Uncirculated 1878 Morgan dollars with this special anniversary set! After rich gold and silver mines were found in California and Nevada, branch U.S. Mints were established in San Francisco and Carson City to convert precious metal into U.S. coinage. This included magnificent Morgan silver dollars, which debuted 140 years ago in 1878. These large, hefty coins saw their greatest popularity in the Old West, and first-year San Francisco and Carson City Morgans are in great demand among collectors:
- 1878-S Morgan Dollar – first of the early San Francisco Morgans known for strong strikes and attractive surfaces, as the work load allowed for extra care in striking silver dollars
- 1878-CC Morgan Dollar – first of the low-mintage Carson City Morgan silver dollars from “the mint of the Comstock Lode” – the greatest silver deposit ever discovered in North America
Each Mint State Morgan comes in a special anniversary holder and the set is presented in a display case with a story card and certificate of authenticity. Add these historic first-year Morgan dollars to your collection today and SAVE off individual prices!
