Once considered among the rarest Morgan Silver Dollars, those 19th-century silver dollars produced by the Carson City Mint had some of the lowest original mintage figures of any coin in the series. The Carson City Mint only issued the coins from 1878 to 1885 and again from 1889 to 1893. Many of the remaining certified versions of the coin come from the GSA hoards discovered in the 1960s in Treasury vaults. Right now, 1881-CC Morgan Silver Dollar Coins are available to you in certified condition from JM Bullion.

Each 1881-CC Morgan Silver Dollar Coin available in this product listing comes to you in a protective slab. Mint State 64 specimens typically have average mint luster remaining for the strike and type of coin. Small contact marks in groups are possible, along with one or two heavier contact marks. One or two small patches of hairlines may show, but the coins remain quite attractive overall.
The 1881 and 1885 CC Morgan Silver Dollars stand the test of time as some of the more unique coins in this series. For nearly a century, investors and collectors believed these two dates marks were among the rarest as they were old dates with the two lowest original mintages. However, more than half the original mintage in both years ended up sitting in Treasury vaults for decades and were only recently released by the Treasury and GSA through auctions starting in the 1970s. The 1881-CC had an original mintage of 296,000 coins, with some 147,485 of those coins found in the GSA hoard in the 1960s.
Obverse designs on 1881-CC Morgan Silver Dollars show Liberty in left-profile relief. This portrait of Liberty from George T. Morgan shows her wearing a Phrygian cap on her head with the coronet crown and laurel wreath in her hair.
Reverse visuals on 1881-CC Morgan Silver Dollar Coins include the heraldic eagle of the United States. Also designed by Morgan, this visual shows the bald eagle in front-facing relief with the arrows of war, the olive branch of peace, and an oak-and-laurel wreath. The CC mint mark is on this side.
