  • Mintage: 350,000
  • NGC Population: 241/352
  • PCGS Population: 284/350
  • CU Price Guide: $20,000
  • Expected to cost approximately $40,000+ in low Mint State condition.
  • Considered the “King of Carson City Morgan Dollars” the 1889-CC is by far the toughest date from the Wild West Mint and the rarest in the entire series.
  • The Carson City Mint struck far fewer Morgan Dollars than any of the other branch mints, including the Denver Mint which only struck Morgan Dollars in 1921.

  • The minuscule 350,000 examples struck in those last months of 1889, were circulated heavily and some believe that as many as 250,000 coins were melted down when it was all said and done.
  • Approximately 7% of all coins certified for the 1889-CC $1 reside in MS condition. The next lowest Carson City Morgan date being the 1893-CC at roughly 39%.
  • Most 1889-CC silver dollars are found considerably worn so locating an attractive About Uncirculated specimen for the King of Carson City Morgan Dollars is quite the accomplishment.
