The United States of America was born in Philadelphia on July 4, 1776, with the signing of our Declaration of Independence from England. American coinage was also born in Philadelphia when, in 1792, the first United States Mint was established there.
It was at the Philadelphia Mint that George T. Morgan designed the silver dollar that became so admired it was later named after him! Many historic coins were issued from the Philadelphia Mint, but none as popular as the Morgan silver dollar. Their size, classic design, and 90% silver content have made them the most collected silver coins in the world!
When these big, beautiful Uncirculated silver dollars were struck over a century ago in Philadelphia, Grover Cleveland was president, and the newly completed Statue of Liberty was dedicated in New York Harbor. During those same years, Louis Pasteur administered the first rabies vaccine, and a new soft drink called Coca-Cola was invented.
This handsome 3-coin set (1885, 1886, and 1887) of Uncirculated, MS-60 Morgan silver dollars from America's first mint can now be yours. This set makes it easy for you to add these historic coins to your collection.
