Morgan Silver Dollar


The Morgan Dollar is made out of 90% pure silver and 10% copper. Nowadays it serves as a reminder of the long history of the United States currency. In that history, it was aligned with the interests of the Silver Party and owners of the silver mines whom lobbied intensively to produce and maintain the coin.

Historically, from 1873 – the year of the “Coinage Act” or “Crime of ‘73” – there was a regulation in the USA that only gold coins should be minted. The American gold and silver standard was over and so money within the USA was to undergo a significant reform. However, an additional law set by the Treasury stated that up to at least $2 million worth of domestic silver could be purchased every month and developed into coins. This is, essentially, how the Morgan Silver Dollar came into existence.

What’s particularly special about this money clip is that it´s not produced using replicas of the coins but, rather, genuine American silver dollars. From the year stamped into some of the coins, you can tell that they’re around 100 years old. The coins themselves have a very high value which is further increased by the manner in which they have been processed into works of art.
