George Morgan traveled from London to work for the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia in 1876, following his recommendation by C.W. Freemantle of the Royal Mint and soon after was requested to design a silver dollar. It was to become one of the most collected coins in U.S. history. The obverse of the coin depicts a profile portrait representing Liberty, whom it was decided would be shown as an American woman rather than a classical Greek figure - a marked departure from a coin design. Morgan based his Liberty on a portrait of Anna Willess Williams, whom Morgan thought to have a perfect profile. Circling the portrait can be seen 13 stars representing the original 13 Colonies forming the United States, plus the words "E. PLURIBUS UNUM" and the date of 1883. The reverse shows an eagle with wings outstretched, based on drawings Moran did from nature. The eagle clasps arrows representing America's ability to defend itself and an olive branch representing peace. The eagle is shown above a laurel wreath, which encircles about 2/3 of the coin. The words "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "In God we trust" and the value of "ONE DOLLAR" also appear. Crucially, on the examples struck in Carson City, the letters 'CC' appear just above the letters 'D' and 'O' of the word 'DOLLAR.'

What's so special about a 'CC' Morgan Dollar?

The first Morgan dollars were struck in 1878 and continued to be minted until 1904, before being produced again in 1921. Most of these coins were struck by the U.S. Mint at their Philadelphia facility. The Carson City Mint was a small outpost of the U.S. Mint opened close to a silver mine in the West. The Mint had a chequered history, founded in 1863 it didn't go into production until 1870, running continuously for 15 years before closing for four years, re-opening briefly between 1889 and 1893 - before ceasing operation altogether. That's what makes the Carson City examples so collectible; their production was fleeting, and coins with the 'CC' mintmark are rare.

Though some Carson City coins were discovered and sold off by the U.S. Treasury in the 1970s, examples certified with a mint state of 67 are particularly sought after. The Morgan Silver Dollar is one of the most collected coins in U.S. history and the Carson City coins mainly, mirror the story of the American West - perhaps that's what makes them so fascinating to historians, numismatists and investors alike. The Carson City Morgan Silver Dollar represents the American West in miniature.
