George T. Morgan’s First Dollar

Restrikes brought to life in proof silver!

Former U.S. Mint Chief Engraver, Designer Extraordinaire

Numismatists will immediately recognize one of the most famous U.S. coin designs in history, the Morgan Silver Dollar. Named after its designer, George T. Morgan, this dollar circulated across the nation, from the Wild West to the busy streets of New York. This coin was the workhorse of the American economy from 1878-1921. While many collectors seek out Morgan Dollars, few know that this was not Morgan’s first dollar.

Making Numismatic History 

After resting in storage of the Smithsonian for 40 years, a treasure was found in a sketchbook that belonged to George Morgan! On page 31, Morgan had drafted a design for a U.S. Silver Trade Dollar that never made it into circulation. This design was never seen by researchers or collectors…until now!

Golden Age Hoard of Ancient Roman Silver Coins

Extremely Fine Antoninius Pius Denarii have been unearthed!

ModernCoinMart (MCM) is proud to bring you an exciting offering — silver denarii of legendary Roman Emperor Antoninius Pius, discovered in the Golden Age Hoard!

Antoninius Fulvus Pius, known as one of the ”Five Good Emperors,” reigned between A.D. 138 and 161. Regarded as a skilled administrator and builder, Rome undertook extensive construction during his reign, including aqueducts, bridges and roads throughout the empire. Despite these massive projects, he still managed to be one of the few Roman emperors to ever leave a large surplus in the public treasury for his successor.
