Product Description

Welcome to the world of numismatics with the 1878-S Morgan Silver Dollar, now available at BGASC! This magnificent coin holds a significant place in American history, thanks to the enactment of the Bland-Allison Act in 1878, which led to the resurgence of US silver dollars in active circulation. Designed by the talented George T. Morgan, this iconic coin has a rich heritage of 28 years of production and was minted at five different branch mints.

  • Struck at the esteemed San Francisco Mint, with a reported mintage of 9.774 million coins!
  • Contains .7734 Troy oz of actual silver content.
  • The face value of $1 (USD) is fully backed by the US government, ensuring its authenticity and purity.
  • Graded Mint State 63 by the reputable Numismatic Guaranty Corporation, a symbol of quality and condition.
  • Features Lady Liberty on the obverse, an enduring symbol of freedom and prosperity.
  • The reverse showcases the heraldic eagle with an S mint mark from the San Francisco Mint.

At BGASC, you can secure your 1878-S Morgan Silver Dollar, each one certified in Mint State 63 condition. These coins may display slight impairments in mint luster, with clusters of small contact marks, a few heavier marks, and tiny patches of hairlines visible without magnification.


George T. Morgan’s remarkable design graces the obverse of the 1878-S Morgan Dollars, featuring the elegant bust of Lady Liberty adorned with a Phrygian cap, a coronet crown, and a laurel wreatha true tribute to American ideals.


The reverse side boasts a distinctive front-facing bald eagle design, setting it apart from the typical 19th-century coin designs. While lacking the US national shield, the eagle proudly extends its wings, clutching arrows of war and an olive branch of peace.


Back in 1878, the United States Mint was actively operating three branch mints, contributing to the nationwide production of the Morgan Silver Dollar. The Philadelphia Mint on the East Coast, the Carson City Mint in the American West, and the San Francisco Mint on the West Coast all played crucial roles in minting this historic coin.
