The Carson City Mint was a branch of the United States Mint in Carson City, Nevada.
The Carson City Mint primarily minted silver coins; however, it also minted gold coins, with a total face value in dollars nearly equal to that of its silver coins. The mint minted coins in 21 different years.*
In the early 1960s, a large quantity of uncirculated Morgan dollars in their original bags were discovered in the Treasury vaults, including issues once thought rare. Individuals began purchasing large quantities of the coins at face value and then removed them from circulation through hoarding. Eventually the Treasury ceased exchanging silver certificates for silver coin. Beginning in the 1970s, the Treasury conducted a sale of Morgan silver dollars minted at the Carson City Mint through the General Services Administration. We are a leading buyer of all Morgan Dollars, including GSA Morgan Dollars in all conditions.
