United States Morgan Silver Dollar 1878-1921


Silver Dollars or “Cartwheels” are the largest silver coins that the United States ever issued for general circulation. It was political pressure, not the need for a dollar silver coin, that gave birth to the Morgan Dollar. When the Liberty Seated Dollar was discontinued in 1873, silver mining interests and their champion Richard “Silver Dick” Bland began forcefully lobbying for the return of the silver dollar.
