Morgan Silver Dollar Values

All have the standard non-crowned Queens head.


Some dollars are missing the "dot" between T and S of the designers initials. These are fairly rare, and without question the most beautiful of dollars. I suspect specimen is correct but they certainly look like Proof's.

In Queen Elizabeth's portrait was updated to a more mature look wearing a tiara. This portrait remained in use until There are 5 varieties of the dollar, depending on the size of the beads around the head, and if the 5 has a blunt or pointed end at the bottom of the curled. Most easily identified by the small jewel at the back of the head being slightly detached from the head only type 5 type is like that. Large bead examples are very common and all but the nicest examples are only worth their silver content.

Small bead examples are extremely rare. On common one it points at the left edge of a bead, while on the rare small bead it points between two beads. All small bead dollars have a Proof-like mirror finish so if your coin has a typical slightly matte MS finish you don't need to look at that A. These examples below are the common large bead unless otherwise noted. In , to celebrate Canada's th anniversary as a country, all circulating coins depicted animals common to Canada, with a flying Canada goose on the silver dollar.

Please note the examples offered here are exceptional examples, either Proof-likes, Specimens or high end MS examples, but normal examples even in MS to 62 are very common and only worth the value of the silver they contain, so we do not list them here.

For most cameo coins only the portrait side is where the cameo effect is important. For coins the cameo effect on the animals is important to some collectors, so for these we will note if the cameo is on Canada Goose as well. Some dollars have a reverse rotated about 45 degrees and are known as the Diving Goose dollar.

While these are struck to PL quality, they are not found in the mint sets. The dollar was the last circulating SILVER dollar, replaced in similar dollar coins struck of nickel with no silver content. A listing of the nickel dollars will be found further below.

From to no actual silver dollars were struck and all dollar coins of those dates are of nickel. In actual silver dollars were again struck for the collector market, usually with commemorative designs and never intended for circulation. From to and to present they are sterling From to they were pure From to were all struck in specimen quality sold either as single coins in black imitation leather boxes, or included in the double dollar black leather box sets. In they begin to strike these in both Brilliantly Uncirculated BU and Proof quality mirror fields with frosted images with BU coins sold as single coins in hard plastic cases, and Proof coins as single coins in black leatherette boxes or included in the boxed leather Proof sets.

In later dates a variety of other packaging was tried for the proof single dollars. The examples we offer have been removed from their boxes or proof sets which are thick and thus expensive to ship, and put into other packaging thin enough to be shipped less expensive to ship. If you require the original boxes I can often ship in them extra shipping will be added to the order. If you need the original boxes, please let me know when you place your order. My selection of available dates changes constantly and I cannot keep this part of my website up to date to it.

If there is a date or dates you are looking for please contact me about price and availability. Generally the newer the date the higher in that range they will be. The list below is just to tell you what dates and types I sometimes have in the store. Please note that up to when I describe a coin to be Proof-like PL I mean a coin from a mint set, intestinally struck to a higher quality than normal, but worth less than a MS Mint State coin from a bank roll in the same grade.

They are fairly easily differentiated by their strike and luster. Starting in the mint stopped making intentionally nicer coins for the standard sets and the coins are all simply MS mint state except for specimen and proof examples.

The following to dollar coins are struck in pure nickel and at 32 mm are smaller than the 36 mm actual silver dollars made during this same period.

They will also attract to a magnet while the silver ones will not. During this period may dates are the standard voyageur design, but others were special commemorative's.

We will note the special commemorative's in their listings, and if such is not noted you can assume it is the voyageur design. From to these come as standard circulation strikes MS, AU, XF, etc which were issued in rolls through the banks, Proof-like quality strikes issued in the standard official poly-pack Proof-like sets selected very nice coins , and Specimen strikes which were double struck to give them sharper images and higher lustre and which were issued in both the double dollar black leather box sets, and special specimens sets which in early years were in red leatherette double penny sets, and later years in the hard blue boxed sets.

From to they still come as standard circulation strikes to issue through the banks, proof-like strikes in the standard poly-pack PL sets, specimen strikes in the blue boxed sets, but in the double dollar black leather box sets they changed to Proof strikes which have mirror like fields and frosted images.

As with the cased silver dollars, these nickel dollars from sets or issued with boxes will not be shipped without the boxes as it makes the shipping costs too high and those from sets have to be removed from the sets. We don't have capsules for most of these so they will be in standard card 2x2's.

In there are six varieties of the nickel dollars, with the small and no island types difficult to differentiate: I have noticed many proof-like dollars have flan defects as parallel horizontal lines into the flan, that were on the flans prior to striking. I will select specimens to offer below that have as few of these marks as possible hopefully none but if you are interested in one that has such marks clear and strong, please let me know and I can select for that feature.

The nickel dollar commemorates the th anniversary of the Province of Manitoba's entry into Canadian confederation, and shows official Provincial flower of the prairie crocus. The standard Queen's portrait is on the obverse. All examples of this type are made of nickel. Beginning in , the mint begins striking three different striking qualities of coins, with a fourth added in Mint state abbreviated MS which are coins struck for issue through the banks and have average lustre and surface qualities.

In most cases MS coins have little value unless in the highest range of the MS coins, and those are seldom seen. Proof-like abbreviated PL are standard mint set coins, usually from the pliofilm packaged sets, red double penny sets, and later the blue book set, but in later dates there were a variety of other types of sets they can come from. PL coins have a much higher lustre than MS coins, mostly because they are struck from dies in their newest die state.

They also have very minimal marks the average PL is a PL as they did not go through as many of the mint handling processes as MS coins do, but they are not perfect coins and one should not expect them to be absolutely mark free. Specimen abbreviated SP or SPEC which were in the black leather double dollar sets from to , and for later dates in various types sets.

Like PL coins they are struck from dies in their freshest die state but differ in being double struck to give them a higher lustre and sharper images, and they do not go through any mint handling processes before going into the sets so are nearly mark free.

The rims tend and edges tend to be a little sharper although this is not obvious on a casual inspection. When we list a coin as being a specimen, it is because we personally took it from a specimen set before listing it here. Proof abbreviated PR coins are very nice coins found mostly issued in the double dollar black leather boxed proof sets starting in , although some specialty coins did come other ways.

The coins are clearly differing from the other striking qualities by being double struck from specially prepared dies so they have mirror fields and frosted images and ultra cameo effect and are specially handled so they go into the sets in near perfect condition as possible.

The nickel dollar commemorates the th anniversary of the Province of British Columbia's entry into Canadian confederation, and shows the Provincial crest with the Provinces official flower of the Dog Wood above. These nickel examples are only 32 mm, but the same design was also struck in fine silver at 36 mm.

The nickel dollar commemorates the th anniversary of the Province of Prince Edward Islands entry into Canadian confederation, and shows the provincial legislature building. The standard Queen's portrait is on the obverse, although it uses a slightly modified "small bust" design as one also see's on the quarters. These were only struck of nickel. The nickel dollar commemorates the th anniversary of Winnipeg. This is one of the few years same type was also struck in nickel and silver but the silver ones are larger.

Inside the left 0 there is a Red River cart where most examples have a single upright on the oxen's yoke, but a few have a double yoke. There are several variations of the double yoke as well as other variations on these coins which you will find discussed in detail on Ken Potters website.

I list them with is his varieties numbers when I have them. The most common double yoke variety, which we usually have available, is From to only voyageur design nickel dollars were struck although there were minor changes in the design.

In the denticle border around the reverse was replaced with a beaded border but only for this year as the denticle border resumes in Starting in and continuing on until the series ends in , the northern lights behind the voyagers change from recessed lines to raised lines. Most examples will be detached jewel with long water lines. The Canadian Coin News trend sheet show all three types existing in circulation MS strike, but only type 2 detached jewel, short water lines in Proof-like sets, but the Charlton Standard Catalogue shows all three in both circulation and proof-like strikes which I believe to be correct.

Type 1 - attached jewel with short water lines Type 2 - detached jewel with long water lines Type 3 - detached jewel with short water lines. PL, specimen and Proof sets have the voyageur design, but specimen examples of the constitution type were sold as singles.

PL, specimen and Proof sets have the voyageur design, but Proof examples of the Cartier type were sold as singles. Aureate-bronze plated nickel Loon dollars were the coins issued for general circulation this year. The obverse design of the Queen wearing a tiara was by Arnold Machin. The swimming loon reverse design was a joint effort of Robert Carmichael and Terrance Smith. As soon as they appeared people started calling them "loonies" which has stuck to this day. Some years saw special commemorative designs which will be discussed in the listing for those years.

The coins were introduced at 7. In the size was reduced to Only slightly heavier and larger than a quarter they were easily mistaken for a quarter when pulled from one's pocket by feel alone, so they were made 11 sided with a smooth edge which allowed anyone, including the blind, to easily differentiate them. All examples I offer, including those in Proof or Specimen quality, are mounted in standard 2x2 card holders unless otherwise specified.

In Loon dollars were the first of this series and were issued in bank rolls MS quality, as well as single coins in Proof finish. Proof, specimen and Proof-like sets for have a voyageur design nickel dollar. A new obverse design by Dora De Pedery-Hunt and Ago Aarand was introduced in and used until , showing Queen Elizabeth wearing a diamond diadem and necklace.

The reverse design remained the same as in Two designs were issued in , one with the normal swimming loon but with the double date as below the loon to commemorate Canada's anniversary as a country, available in MS as well as Proof-like, Specimen and Proof quality.

The second showed three children seated on the ground in front of the Parliament buildings and comes in MS for circulation, proof-like the Charlton listing that does not list these in PL which is an error as they are in the PL quarters sets , and in proof in some of the proof sets.

Any trace of the bottom water line disqualified a coin from being considered an Arnprior type. A modified reverse, with no water lines at all, was put into use in In addition to removing the water lines, this modified reverse was different because the image of the canoe on the coin had a larger islet tip at the right end. This variety is different from the Arnprior coins in that it was deliberately created.

This was similar to the accidental disappearance of water lines on the versions from The dollars caught the interest of many collectors and it was this version that led to the term Arnprior being applied to any dollar with an appearance of missing water lines. An element that was common on every denomination of was the two obverses that existed.

The coinage for the year featured the new effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The sculptress was Mrs. Mary Gillick and she created a model with a relief that was too high. The centre portion of the effigy was to feature two lines on the shoulder. These lines were supposed to represent a fold in the Queen's gown. As these lines did not appear very well, it was commonly termed the No Shoulder Strap by many collectors.

This modified obverse became known as the Shoulder Strap variety. The dollar had a reverse that was considered an Arnprior. The reverse featured one water line to the right of the canoe. Although would mark a change in the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, the year would offer five different varieties of the dollar. The small beads on the obverse of the coin define varieties 1 and 2.

The rear jewel on Queen Elizabeth II's tiara is well attached. The 5 in has two varieties. There is a pointed 5 the point is at the bottom while there is another version with a blunt 5 the bluntness is at the bottom of the 5 too. The large beads on the obverse of the coin define varieties 3 and 4. The obverse of variety 5 features medium beads. The Sacagawea dollar was authorized by Congress in because the supply of Anthony dollars, in inventory since their last mintage in , was soon expected to be depleted.

These coins have a copper core clad by manganese brass. Delays in increasing Sacagawea dollar production led to a final dated mintage of Susan B. Dollar coins are used infrequently in general commerce. They were also used in certain subway and public transit systems, such as the "T" in Boston. In , the U.

Mint conducted a limited design competition for the new dollar, inviting 23 artists to submit designs portraying Sacagawea on the obverse "heads" side and American bald eagle on the reverse "tails" side.

The obverse was designed by artist Glenna Goodacre. There are approximately 1 billion Sacagawea coins in circulation, and about million in reserve. Mint greatly reduced production of Sacagawea dollars after the minting, citing sufficient inventory. From to , the Sacagawea dollar was still minted for collectors and was available in uncirculated rolls, mint sets, and proof sets, but it was not released for general circulation again until the introduction of the Native American series in The Mint took great care to create the coin with the same size, weight, and electromagnetic properties as the Anthony dollar, but with a golden color.

Unlike most other coins in circulation, the selected alloy has a tendency to tarnish quite severely in circulation, as is the case with most brasses , resulting in a loss of the golden shine, except on raised areas where the "patina" is more frequently rubbed off. The coin featured a plain edge through , but starting in , incused lettering was applied.

The year and mint mark moved from the coin's obverse front to its edge. As of , dollar coins are not widely encountered in U. Mint began designing a series of Sacagawea dollars with modified reverses to further commemorate "Native Americans and the important contributions made by Indian tribes and individual Native Americans to the development of the United States and the history of the United States".

Four designs were to be minted, each for one year from to The first Native American series coin was released in January and had a reverse that depicted a Native American woman sowing seeds of the Three Sisters , symbolizing the Indian tribes' contributions to agriculture. Like the Presidential Dollar , the year of issue, mint mark, and motto E Pluribus Unum are found on the edge of the coin instead of on the obverse or reverse, which allows for more room for the design. Also, unlike any other denomination of circulating U.

In January , the second reverse design in the series was released which has the theme of "Government" and the " Great Tree of Peace ". The Sacagawea reverse depicts the Hiawatha Belt and five arrows bound together representing unity with the inscription " Haudenosaunee ", a synonym for the Iroquois Confederacy meaning "People of the Longhouse".

Another inscription is found along the lower edge of the reverse spelling " Great Law of Peace " an English translation of Gayanashagowa, the Iroquois Confederacy constitution.

The four links on the belt are meant to symbolize four of the five Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy, namely the Mohawk , Oneida , Cayuga and Seneca Nations. The Eastern White Pine tree in the middle of the belt represents the fifth Nation, the Onondaga , and is a depiction of the Tree of Peace.

In , Presidential coins of four different designs were produced. Another four designs will be produced each year, honoring the Presidents in order of service. Grover Cleveland is on two coins, since he served two non-consecutive terms. Under federal law 31 U. The presidential dollar coin is the same size and composition as the Sacagawea dollar. A common minting error on this coin, estimated at 80,, from a mintage of ,, coins, is the omission of the edge lettering causing a plain outside edge.

The edge lettering does not occur at the same time as the minting of the coins, allowing for the natural occurrence of the lettering in either orientation, [39] except Proof Coins where the date and lettering are all "right-side-up".

Because of budget constraints and increasing stockpiles of these relatively unpopular coins, the production of new Presidential dollar coins for circulation was suspended on December 11, , by U. Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Future minting of such coins has been reserved solely for collectors. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Trade dollar United States coin.
