SILVER DOLLARS 1878-1935
The minting of Silver Dollars in the United States began with the Flowing Hair Dollar in 1794. Although there were several different Silver Dollar designs since then, the Morgan and Peace Dollars are the most collected and well known U.S. Silver Dollars that have ever entered into circulation.
The word "dollar" comes from the German "Thaler," the name given to the first large size European silver coins. These coins became so popular that in the 16th century many other countries began issuing similar coins. The Spanish Dollar, or piece of eight, was widely circulated in the American Colonies, so it was only natural the term "dollar" was officially adopted as the standard monetary unit for the United States. Silver dollars have been a favorite of collectors for well over 100 years and their popularity continues to grow.
The Morgan Silver Dollar was minted from 1878 through 1921 and was designed by George T. Morgan. Peace Silver Dollars, minted from 1921-1935, represent the last silver dollars issued by the U.S. for general circulation. They were designed by Anthony de Francisci. Both the Morgan and Peace Dollars are made of 90% silver making them a popular selection among investors and collectors alike.
