The Morgan Silver Dollar is one of the all-time classic American coins, prized by modern collectors. A venerable symbol of the American West and of the colorful characters of frontier life with whom it first became popular, it’s known for its unmistakable design, large size, and substantial silver content. It was minted at multiple branches of the U.S. Mint, and some of the rarest surviving specimens were issued at New Orleans between 1879 and 1904, many of which were lost to circulation wear or simply melted down in the decades after they were issued. Now known as the “forgotten” class of Morgan dollars, these coins are especially difficult to find in uncirculated coin grades of Mint State 60 or better. The 1900-O Morgan Silver Dollar Coin is such a coin, now available from JM Bullion.

PCGS is one of the world’s leading third-party coin grading services and has certified the grade of this coin using the standardized Sheldon Scale. Its Mint State grade of 64 means a coin with attractive eye appeal, average luster and strike, and scattered hairline scratches and contact marks of which a few may turn up in prime focal areas.

Each shipment comes fully insured against any chance of mishap in transit by the team at JM Bullion.
The coin’s obverse field features Lady Liberty wearing a Phrygian cap, along with the lettering “E PLURIBUS UNUM” and “1900.” Thirteen decorative stars at the rim represent each of America’s founding states.
A heraldic eagle dominates the reverse field, clutching a bundle of arrows and an olive branch. This is accompanied by the “O” mint mark and the inscriptions “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “ONE DOLLAR,” and “IN GOD WE TRUST.”
