History, Information, and Value of 1899 Morgan Dollar
Value of 1899-S Morgan Silver Dollar
Most Mint State 1899-S Morgan Silver Dollars are well struck and very attractive, with an excellent rich and frosty luster. Bagmarks are not a problem with most 1899-S dollars. In circulated grades the 1899-S is far less common than its Mint State counterparts. The San Francisco mint did not produce 1899-S Morgan Silver Dollar proofs.
Circulated Coins Are Good, But We Recommend Finding an UNC Example: EF and AU coins can be found with a little patience but most collectors enjoy Mint State coins to represent this date.
UNCs Can be Found, It Shouldn’t Take Much Effort: Many bags of this formerly scarce date were released in the 1940s and 1950s, with some of the quantity going to Las Vegas gaming tables. By the early 1960s much of the surplus for the date had been distributed. Pleasing MS-64 coins with a solid strike and lively, lustrous surfaces are available and make an excellent addition to a Morgan dollar set.
The obverse text on the Morgan Dollar reads “Liberty; E Pluribus Unum; 1899.” The reverse text on the Liberty dollar reads “United States of America; In God We Trust; One Dollar; S.” The obverse of the silver one dollar coin has a bust of a female facing the left wearing a cap and small crown, with flowers tucked in her hair and stars surrounding the border. The reverse of the Morgan Dollar has an eagle in the center with its wings spread and a wreath surrounding.
