Founded in 2001, Rare Coin Wholesalers has transacted over $2 billion in U.S. rare coin business and is a recognized leader in acquiring, managing, and selling U.S. rare coins positioned for wealth preservation and capital growth.

Morgan dollars are one of the most collected types of coins.  The history of the coin is interesting as there was never really a previous need for silver dollars in the United States. However, on February 28, 1878, Congress passed the Bland-Allison Act, which required the Treasury to purchase between two to four million troy ounces of silver every month to turn coins into dollars. This was mainly due to the discovery of the Comstock Lode in Nevada which was extracting about $36 million in silver annually. George T. Morgan designed this new silver dollar. Millions of these silver dollars were minted with most of them being stored in bank vaults as reserves. They were really never used except in Montana and Las Vegas. As a result, there are many examples of Morgan dollars that have survived in mint state condition.
