History's most popular silver coin, the magnificent Morgan Dollar is a lustrous symbol of the growth and expansion of the American West. Morgans were struck from 1878 to 1921, however millions of these spectacular Cartwheel Dollars were lost in the massive melting that occurred during the 20th Century. in 1918 alone, over half the existing Morgan Dollars were melted by the government and converted into silver bars. As a result, certain mintage dates have been extremely scarce for decades and are categorized today as key dates due to their rarity and extraordinary high prices they command.
A dazzling tribute to the long legacy of the Morgan Dollar, this collection includes a tribute coin for each year a Morgan Dollar that has been struck by the United States Mint with a collector's display box. Each Morgan Dollar Collector's Proof is a treasure.
