Morgan Dollar Mintages


1882 Morgan Dollar

Morgan Dollars were issued from 1878 to 1904 and then for one additional year in 1921. Coins were minted at five different mints during this span: Philadelphia (no mint mark), New Orleans (O), Carson City (CC), Denver (D), and San Francisco (S). The mint marks are found on the reverse of the coin below the wreath.

The lowest mintage circulation strike coin for the series is the 1893-S Morgan Dollar with 100,000 coins reported produced. The highest mintage for a single issue occurs for the 1921 Morgan Dollar which had an astounding 44,690,000 pieces struck at the Philadelphia Mint.

Although mintage figures are important in gauging the rarity of the various coins of the series, it is not always definitive. Some coins experienced very high survival rates, which makes low mintage coins readily available. On the other hand, some coins with higher mintages circulated extensively, making the coins rare especially in higher grades or mint state.

The mintage figures below present figures for circulation strike coins.
