Description & Analysis

The mintage of the 1886-P Morgan dollar is just under 20 million coins. While some were released at the time of striking, many survived untouched in original mint bags until the mid 20th century. Due to this, the 1886-P Morgan dollar is one of the most common in uncirculated grades today. In fact, NGC has graded nearly a thousand examples in MS67! (10/2016)
