How much does a Morgan Silver Dollar weigh?

A Morgan dollar weighs 26.73 grams with a metal composition of 90% silver and 10% copper

A Morgan Dollar weighs 26.73 grams and is made of .900 silver to .100 copper.  Making it .77344 oz of actual silver.  Even though it's a called a silver dollar it doesn't mean it's 100% silver.

So how much is the silver worth in your silver dollar? Well that would depend on what the price of silver is today! First off don't get confused between the collectable value of a Morgan versus it's value in silver by weight.

A coin collector might be willing to pay more than it's value in silver depending on the year it was minted, where it was minted the condition of the coin etc If you want to know just the value of silver I found this cool coin calculator that will come up with that number for you, Coinflation.com
