1881 Morgan Dollar

1881 Morgan Silver Dollar

Why were there low mintage in Carson City for the 1881 Morgan dollar, 1879, and 1880. The Bland-Allison Act was in force at that time meaning the United States Treasury had to purchase between 2-4 million worth of silver each month that would be coined into silver dollars. Carson City had a limited capacity of coining silver dollars compared to the other mints, but their coinage was lower than normal during that time period.

Before 1885 U.S. Treasury director Burchard and assistant Secretary French, Treasurer Wyman thought silver should only be delivered to Carson City  when they could purchase the silver at a reasonable rates. The cost of shipping to Carson City was more than shipping elsewhere making it more expensive to coin Morgan dollars in Carson City.
