Whitman Publishing announces the release of "Morgan Dollar: America's Love Affair With a Legendary Coin," by Michael "Miles" Standish. The 160-page hardcover book will be available May 27, 2014, from booksellers and hobby shops nationwide and online (including at www.Whitman.com), for $29.95.


Miles Standish is vice president and senior grader of PCGS. His new book presents an engaging history and coin-by-coin study of the famous Morgan silver dollar. "Morgan Dollar: America's Love Affair With a Legendary Coin" features the recollections of famous dollar dealer John B. Love, beautiful high-resolution photographs of the Coronet Collection (ranked by PCGS as the "Number One Finest Morgan Dollar Set of All Time"), certified-coin populations, retail prices in multiple grades and other valuable contents for collectors, investors and students of American history.


"I predict that this will be the 'go to' book on the Morgan dollar," said John Mercanti, 12th chief engraver of the U.S. Mint, who wrote the foreword. "It's informative, easy to read and perfect for the experienced Morgan collector or for the new collector just starting out."


Various sections discuss America during the Morgan dollar era; the anatomy of the coin's design; a market study going back to 1946; a year-by-year analysis of the series, including Philadelphia, New Orleans, Carson City, Denver and San Francisco coins; and Morgan dollar Proofs. For further research the book is rounded out with end notes, a bibliography and an index.


Morgan Dollar: America's Love Affair With a Legendary Coin will also be available to be borrowed for free as a benefit of membership in the American Numismatic Association, through the Dwight N. Manley Numismatic Library.
