Struck from 90% Fine Silver and 10% Copper by the United States Mint. Minted from 1878 – 1904.
The Morgan Silver Dollar is the first standard silver dollar minted since the passage of the Coinage Act of 1873. The Coinage Act of 1873 ended the free coining of silver.
This dollar was authorized by the Bland-Allison Act. However, that act was repealed by the Sherman Silver Purchase Act. Once all remaining silver bullion purchased under the Sherman Act was coined into silver dollars and the reserves depleted, the Mint ceased production of the Morgan Silver Dollar. In 1904.
