|American history in a $1 coin For almost a hundred years after the founding of the United States, the U.S. Mint made almost no Silver Dollars. Why? Because there was no significant amount of silver found anywhere until the Comstock Lode was discovered in 1859. 19 years later, U.S. Mints began striking millions of Morgan Silver Dollars every year. These huge, hefty coins, made with nearly an ounce of silver, were just what our nation needed. They fueled commerce, buying everything out West from a shave and a haircut to a night of wild entertainment. But millions of these Silver Dollars were melted to get their silver during the World Wars and the 1960s. That’s why our new pendant is so rare… and so wonderful. Our new Morgan Silver Dollar Pendant is a genuine silver dollar, made with 90% real silver, and set in a finely crafted, rhodium-finished setting. This pendant is a fitting combination that celebrates our wild American heritage. Don’t delay � there just aren’t a lot of Morgan Silver Dollars left!
