The San Francisco Mint was one of the two mints that consistently produced Morgan Dollars each year. Now, you can acquire 1879-S Morgan Silver Dollar Coins in certified condition from BGASC.

These 1879-S Morgan Silver Dollar Coins are available in Mint State 65 condition. Coins with this grade exhibit high-quality mint luster with a few scattered small contact marks or two larger marks. You may also find one or two small patches of hairlines and some noticeable light scuff marks.
The obverse of the 1879-S Morgan Dollar showcases a bust of Lady Liberty, designed by George T. Morgan in 1878. It features Liberty’s head in left-profile relief with a Phrygian cap at the back. She also wears a coronet crown and laurel wreath in her hair.
On the reverse side of the 1879 Morgan Silver Dollars, you’ll find Morgan’s rendition of the heraldic eagle. This eagle lacks a US national shield but depicts the front-facing bald eagle with wings spread, clutching the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace.
Mintage numbers for 1879 varied. Philadelphia produced 14.8 million coins, while San Francisco saw a slight drop to 9.110 million from the previous year. Carson City Mint had a significant decrease from 2.212 million to 756,000 in 1879. However, the addition of 2.887 million coins from New Orleans significantly boosted overall production in 1879 compared to 1878.
