The original Morgan Dollar, a cherished coin that embodies the essence of the Wild West frontier, holds a special place among American collectibles. Minted from 1878 to 1904, this iconic coin gained popularity for its generous proportions, considerable silver content, and striking visual aesthetics. Crafted by the talented Assistant Engraver George T. Morgan, its scarcity has grown with time due to the effects of circulation and the melting down of coins to extract their precious metals. Today, certified 1900 Morgan Silver Dollar Coins are available to you online at JM Bullion.

Morgan Silver Dollars were issued from the Reconstruction Era in American history through the Gilded Age and into the 20th century. Following its pause in 1904, one final Morgan Silver Dollar would be issued in 1921.
All 1900 Morgan Silver Dollars available here are Mint State 63 specimens. Coins in this condition have impaired mint luster with the possibility of flaws such as clusters of small contact marks, heavier contact marks, and noticeable hairlines within the field.
The obverse design of every 1900 Morgan Dollar coin showcases a left-facing profile of Lady Liberty. To capture her essence accurately, George T. Morgan engaged in multiple portrait sessions with Anna Willess Williams. He adorned the design with 13 stars encircling Liberty’s head and included the year of issue at the base of her bust.
The reverse side of all 1900 Morgan Silver Dollars showcases the majestic heraldic eagle, an iconic symbol of America. The eagle holds arrows in one talon, symbolizing the country’s readiness to defend itself, and an olive branch in the other, representing peace. Notable engravings on the reverse include “United States of America” and the coin’s face value.
