Young Numismatists Exchange | ZanzibarCoins

Hi everyone! We have been out of town for a while, and we had a lovely vacation in Wyoming, going to Yellowstone and Grand Teton (beautiful, the both of them!!). But I'm back now! I hope to, possibly, have two posts today, because I was working on them a little while on the road, but the second one isn't done yet, so we shall see... Anyways, Morgan Dollars part two! The hunt for a designer, a model, and a solid idea for the design! Here we go! :)

Large Silver Dollars, The Morgan Dollar, Part One

Young Numismatists Exchange | ZanzibarCoins

So my dad and I recently stumbled upon someone liquidating their late father's coin collection, who didn't exactly know what they were selling. They happened to have ten large silver dollars that they were selling for around spot (then lol, it's changing all over the place right now). When I saw what they were, I about had a heart attack from pleasure. My dad had originally planned on purchasing them simply for their silver content, but as it turned out, two of them were Peace Dollars, and eight of them were Morgan Dollars! And half of them were in really good condition too! We have added them to our large dollar collection (technically a Morgan Dollar one, but since it contains some Eisenhower Dollars, and now Peace Dollars, I'm calling it that lol.), and I thought, why not blog about them? Because they, Morgan Dollars, right now, are simply gorgeous. The design is classical, elegant, and breathtaking. The weight and size are delightful, and the story behind them is a cool one.
