When Jesse James and his gang robbed a bank, a big chunk of their loot was sacks of Morgan Silver Dollars, often called "Cartwheels" because they were the largest U.S. coins ever minted for circulation. Struck in .900 Fine Silver from the famous Comstock Lode, they were the favorite form of currency in the old Wild West.
Morgan Dollars went out of circulation more than 80 years ago, and thousands of collectors have gladly paid for the surviving specimens of these scarce and valuable coins. Act now - supplies are limited.
Each coin is hand selected and certified to be in Very Good or Better condition.
From The Franklin Mint Blog: CARTWHEELING THROUGH AMERICAN HISTORY Every time I take a Morgan Silver Dollar in my hand, I am overwhelmed by two things. First, by its sheer size; next, by the fascinating story behind what is arguably the most historic coin in American history.
Often referred to as "the king of coins," the Morgan Silver Dollar is the largest coin ever minted for circulation in the United States. And at 26.73 grams of .900 Fine Silver, it is among the heaviest coins ever minted.
But to hold one in your hands is to feel the weight of history. It never fails to impress me that these coins were minted from ore mined at the largest silver strike in the history of North America—the famed bonanza known as the Comstock Lode.
The coin is in Very Fine or Better Condition, individually protected in a clear capsule. Your Morgan Dollar will arrive in a black velvet pouch.
