# 616 - 1879-S Morgan Dollar


In 1878 Congress passed the Bland-Allison Act. The Act required the U.S. government to purchase large quantities of silver and turn it into silver dollars. Named after its designer, United States Mint Assistant Engraver George T. Morgan, the Morgan dollar is one of the most popular of all American coins. It's large size, abundant supply, and pleasing appearance make it both affordable and desirable.

Morgan Dollars were struck without interruption from 1878 to1904, then again in 1921. U.S. Mints that produced Morgan Dollars include Philadelphia, New Orleans, San Francisco, Denver, and Carson City.

It weights 26.73g with 90% silver purity.

I am basically a commemorative collector but I have a few Morgan and Peace dollars, slabbed and not slabbed and I will show you some of them.

This is the 1879-S Morgan dollar, slabbed by ANACS, the oldest third-party grading service for coins.

The San Francisco Mint issued a total of 9,110,000 units and ANACS graded 1,734 as MS-65, with 231 graded above. ANACS has graded 10,820 coins in mint state until today (11/12/2019).

The 1879-S Morgan dollar is very common and, in fact, is one of the most common of all Morgan dollars.

This coin has a slight golden tone.

The obverse depicts a profile portrait representing Liberty.


The reverse depicts an eagle with wings outstretched. The mint mark (S) appears on the reverse above the "o" in "Dollar".

Thank you for the upvote.

Every time I see a slabbed Morgan now, I am always reminded of @silverd510. He loves slabbed Morgans, whereas I love slabbed Peace Dollars. I was so glad when you showed your Peace Dollar. I have shown mine here already, but I suppose I can show them again... and when I do, I shall dedicate that article to you, @ronaldoavelino! Have a wonderful day, my friend and take care 😍🥰🌺🤙


I think that I have more slabbed Peace Dollars. The problem is that I don't know where they are. My whole stack is in several different places and I must search for the coin(s). When (If) I find them, I will write an article dedicated to you, my friend.

I went to the LCS this weekend, and they had dozens of culled Morgan’s
At over 100++ years the go for just over melt ...sad.🙃
Thanks for sharing my friend!!!👍🤗


I have dozens of Morgans and Peace dollars, but they are all junk silver. I have showed some of them in past articles. I will show them all in one future article.


Sounds good, even gunk Morgans are Morgans!😀

I still enjoy the Morgans I have even if they are circulated as they are a part of economic history.

Not only of economic history but of the Old West history.
