The Morgan Dollar Coin Ring
The U.S. Morgan Dollar is one of my favorite coins for design reasons. Both sides of the coin are attractive and patriotic. They are getting harder to find in “uncirculated” or “near uncirculated” condition. With high silver content coins, the least amount of time in the pocket, the better. Morgan Dollars are 90% silver and 10% copper. Their popularity as men’s rings is formidable. Size 12 and up has few perils in making than those 10 and under. Think “big fat coin”… “lots of squishing”.
Here’s a bit of stolen history on the Morgan Dollar…. The Morgan dollar was a United States dollar coin minted from 1878 to 1904, and again in 1921. It was the first standard silver dollar minted since production of the previous design, the Seated Liberty dollar, ceased due to the passage of the Coinage Act of 1873, which also ended the free coining of silver. The coin is named after its designer, United States Mint Assistant Engraver George T. Morgan. The obverse depicts a profile portrait representing Liberty, while the reverse depicts an eagle with wings outstretched. These are available NOW on this site right HERE!
