The Morgan Dollar is a silver US coin, and is named after its designer, George T. Morgan, who designed the obverse and reverse of the coin. Morgan's monogram appears near Lady Liberty's neck on the obverse. The dollar was authorized by the Bland-Allison Act of 1878. It has a fineness of .900, giving a total silver content of 0.77344 troy ounces (24.057 grams) per coin.
Morgan Silver Dollars were only minted from 1878-1904 and then again in 1921. They're the largest coins ever made by the U.S. Government for general circulation. Morgans are prized by many collectors due to their scarcity. Most were melted down in the Pittman Act of 1918 for their silver content.
These coins were bought by a collector in the early 60s.
