1901 Morgan Silver Dollars


1901 Morgan Dollar
   The Morgan Dollar was minted between 1878 and 1921 and is named after George T. Morgan, who worked as the Assistant Engraver at the United States Mint. He was the designer of the coin. On the obverse, there is a portrait of Lady Liberty and on the reverse side of the coin, there is a picture of an eagle with wings flared out wide.

   The 1901 Silver Dollar can be very tough to find in uncirculated condition and as a gem. A large amount of competition from coin collectors have made high quality 1901 Morgan Dollars scarce and rare. This has, predictably, driven the price of gems and uncirculated coins up.
   The MS-65 graded coins are the rarest, followed by the MS-63 coins. MS-61s are slightly more numerous than MS-63 coins. However, there is no central authority that knows where all coins are and what their quality is so the estimates are, at best, based off of observations of coin collectors and coin sellers.
