Each of the 1890-CC Morgan Silver Dollar Coins available to you in this JM Bullion product listing earned a Mint State 63 certification from the PCGS. For a coin of its age, this is an impressive grade. Mint State 63 coins are identified by their slightly impaired mint luster, the presence of numerous small contact marks, and the possibility for a few scattered heavy marks.
Morgan Silver Dollar coins were introduced by the United States Mint in 1878 after a five-year hiatus in the production of silver dollars. The Coinage Act of 1873 ended the free coining of silver in the United States, and as a result, brought an end to the Seated Liberty silver dollar coin design.
The Morgan Silver Dollar is known as such because it was designed by George T. Morgan. British by birth, Morgan could find no apprentice openings as an engraver with the Royal Mint of England. He came to the United States Mint on the recommendation of the mint supervisor at the Royal Mint and made an immediate impact with his Morgan Silver Dollar design of Liberty.
On the obverse of the 1890-CC Morgan Silver Dollar Coin, youll find Morgans left-profile portrait of Lady Liberty. A classical Greek- or Roman-themed design, Liberty wears a crown and wreath with the word Liberty visible on the crown. She is surrounded by the phrase E Pluribus Unum and thirteen stars.
The reverse side of 1890 Morgan Silver Dollar coins includes the heraldic eagle of the United States. This design was also created by Morgan and features the bald eagle behind the national shield of the United States.
All of these 1890 Morgan Silver Dollar coins have a CC mint mark from the Carson City Mint. A branch mint of the US Mint, the Carson City Mint in Nevada operated from 1870 to 1885 and again from 1889 to 1893. Its primary role was to coin silver from the Comstock Lode silver mines in Nevada.
