A popular type of coin amongst American Coin collectors are the ‘Morgan Silver Dollar Coins’ minted from 1878 to 1904 and again for one more year in 1921. The Morgan Dollar is named after its designer, George T. Morgan. It has a fineness of .900, giving a total silver content of 0.77344 troy ounces (24.057 grams) per coin.
Morgan Dollars are both popular and well documented. The rare Morgan Silver Dollars are in high demand by coin collectors due to their high return rate. These very collectable silver coins tend to increase substantially in value each year and therefore make great investments particularly with the troubled economy.
