In this class you will be creating ONE ring from a Morgan silver dollar coin using a press and special tools to manipulate the metal into a ring; All supplies are included in this class. ONE student minimum, TWO students maximum. HISTORY: Morgan Silver Dollars were minted continuously from 1878 until 1904. By the early 1900s, the Comstock Lode was exhausted, and the silver bullion supply ran out. As far as Morgan and the rest of the nation were concerned, the era of the Silver Dollar had come to an end. In 1918, Congress passed the Pittman Act to replenish the government's reserves of silver bullion by officially melting millions of the Morgan Silver Dollars stored in Treasury vaults. As a result, over 270,000,000 Morgan Silver Dollars were melted - almost half the entire mintage from 1878-1904. The Pittman Act also required the government to purchase more silver to replace the melted coins, so the Morgan Silver Dollar was briefly revived one more time in 1921 until it was replaced later in the year with the Peace Silver Dollar. Maintain, create, and wear a piece of history!
