1882 Morgan Silver Dollars


1882 Morgan Dollar
    The Morgan Silver Dollar was named after George T. Morgan, the designer of the silver dollar. Of the 27,573,000 circulation strikes of the 1882 Morgan Dollar made between all four mints, the Carson City mint struck the fewest at 1,133,000 coins. Only 1,100 coins from the Philadelphia mint were proofs.
    The Morgan Dollar is 38.1 millimeters in diameter. Its metal content is 90% silver and 10% copper and has a total weight of 26.73 grams. The Silver Dollar has a reeded edge and contains a mintmark based on its mint location on the reverse side under the bow. Only the Philadelphia mints do not contain a mintmark. A rare OS mintmark can be found on a few New Orleans coins.

    The value of the Silver Dollar is linked to the current price of silver bullion. It is also determined by the condition of the coin and its circulation. Based on a minimum rate of $29.04, the circulated versions of the 1882 mints is approximately $29.04 to $31.08, while the uncirculated mints are worth approximately $36.52. The exception to this is the CC mint, the value of which is approximately $51.00 to $71.50 circulated and $125.53 uncirculated.
