The 1890-CC Carson City Morgan Dollar can be a valuable collector's item, but its worth depends on two key factors: its condition and its specific variety. Here's a breakdown:


  • This is the most significant factor influencing value. Professional coin grading services like PCGS or NGC assess a coin's condition using a standardized scale, ranging from "Poor" (heavily circulated) to "Mint State" (uncirculated). A higher grade translates to a significantly higher value.


  • There are slight variations within the 1890-CC Morgan Dollar mintage due to die differences. These variations are not readily noticeable to the untrained eye, but experienced numismatists can identify them. Certain varieties are rarer and more sought-after by collectors, thus commanding higher prices.

Value Estimation:

While an exact value can't be determined without professional grading and variety identification, here's a general range:

  • Circulated Grades (VG - XF): $225 - $505
  • Uncirculated Grades (MS60 - MS63): $3,250 - $10,000+ (depending on specific variety)
  • Gem Uncirculated Grades (MS64+): Prices can reach significantly higher for coins in exceptional condition, potentially exceeding $20,000 or even more for rare varieties.

Here's what you can do to determine your coin's value:

  • Grading: Submit your coin to a reputable grading service like PCGS or NGC. This will authenticate the coin and assign a specific grade that significantly impacts value.
  • Variety Research: Look for online resources or consult a professional numismatist to identify the specific variety of your 1890-CC Morgan Dollar. Resources like PCGS CoinFacts (https://www.pcgs.com/coinfacts/coin/1890-cc-1/7198) can be helpful for reference.

Additional Factors:

  • Eye Appeal: Even within the same grade, there can be variations in a coin's surface quality, luster, and strike. A coin with exceptional eye appeal (minimal contact marks or blemishes) might fetch a higher price than one with more noticeable flaws.
  • Market Fluctuations: The collectible coin market can fluctuate based on economic trends and overall demand for specific coins.


  • If your coin is circulated (worn), its value is likely closer to the $225-$505 range.
  • If your coin appears uncirculated (no wear and luster present), getting it professionally graded and identified for variety is crucial to determine its true value, which could be significantly higher.
  • Consulting a professional numismatist familiar with Morgan Dollars can provide valuable insights and a more precise valuation based on your specific coin's characteristics.
