Coin Highlight – The 1880 Morgan Dollar
The 1880 Morgan Dollar was designed by George T. Morgan in the Royal Mint in London. The coinage of the silver dollar was suspended after 1904 when the demand was low and the bullion supply became exhausted.
Under the provisions of the Pittman Act of 1918 over 270 million silver dollars were melted and later in 1921 coinage of the silver dollar was resumed.
These coins were minted in Philadelphia, New Orleans, Carson City, Denver, and San Francisco mints.
