Morgan Dollars part 2

Coins | user_22476

Hi guys, we are just going to go over the history of the morgan dollars. So let's dive right in. George Thomas Morgan was the person who designed the dollar. He was the Chief Engraver from 1917-1925. And also designed the reverse of the Colombian half-dollar. For the face of the Morgan dollar, he model Anna Willess Williams who was a school teacher. Morgan even put his initials on both the obverse and reverse of the coin. There were over 657 million Morgan dollars minted between 1878-1921. Sadly, a lot of them were melted thanks to the Pittman act in 1918 and the Silver Act in 1942. The rarest of these coins was the 1893 S. This coin only had about 100,000 minted and go anywhere from $1900 to $1,250,000! Another cool feature of the Morgan dollar was that in 1878 there were either 7 or 8 feathers from the " buzzard bird". There are also new Morgan 2021 coins that I have a few of. But that's all I have for you today can't wait to see you soon! Bibliography: https://www.usgoldbureau.com/news/history-of-morgan-silver-dollars 2022 red book

Innovation Dollars

Coins-United States | user_22476

So I saw that some people were a little upset that I left because I couldn't take pictures. So with this blog, I am not going to use pictures( also because my camera STINKS). These coins are brand new, but sadly will only be allowed to be made in small quantities and reserved for collectors. They will honor an achievement made by a state or by a territory. Innovation dollars will also be of the same material as the Native American dollars. The obverse displays Lady Liberty and "IN GOD WE TRUST". The series should continue until 2032. I only have the Delaware-P and D as well as the Pennslyvania-P and D coins. They were given to me by my grandfather who collects British coins. The next blog I will do is about Morgan dollars.

3-cent coin

Coins-United States | user_22476

The 3-cent coin is one of the strangest coins in United States history. It also happens to be the smallest coin in American history. These coins only lasted from 1851-1889 and were also called trimes. There are two types of 3-cent coins which are silver and nickel. The nickel variants were made since all of the silver coins were being hoarded by the public. In the image below the coin is from 1852 and in about good condition. I am very happy to be back in the numismatist family!
