The famous silver dollar design by George T. Morgan was first minted in 1878, by Congressional mandate. Though extremely common during the late 1800s, over 270 million of them were melted down in 1918 to provide Britain with desperately needed silver bullion. Over 50 million more were melted in 1942 for use in the war effort in WWII. Appreciation for the Morgan dollar grew in the 1950s, and the publicity surrounding the discovery of Morgan dollar hoards in US Treasury vaults in the 1960s, the Redfield Hoard of 1976, and the Continental Illinois Bank Hoard of 1984 propelled the once-unloved Morgan dollar to the status of one of the favorite subjects of modern coin collectors.
