Morgan Silver Dollars are an endlessly fascinating coin series that can be collected in a variety of ways such as by date and Mint mark, die variety and others. The appeal of Morgans comes from a combination of their attractive design, the fact that they are large, substantial silver coins with a silver weight of .7734 ounces, their connection to American history, especially to the lure of the West, where the coins circulated much more than in other areas, and endless speculation about how many examples of specific dates and varieties exist today.
