1878-1904 Morgan Silver Dollar XF (random year) - 0.7734 troy ounces - .900 bullion
Meaning "shining" or "white", named argentum in Latin from which the chemical symbol Ag is derived, and known since ancient times having even been mentioned in the Book of Genesis, silver has been a prized and highly sought after precious metal throughout human history. It has been used as money as early as 700 B.C. when electrum (a silver and gold alloy) was first coined by the Lydians. The Greek and later Roman empires also coined silver money as early as the 4th century B.C. Silver has been an indomitable staple of world currencies from those ancient times until relatively recently when the gold standard was abandoned and fiat currencies prevailed. It is also an indispensable industrial metal. It is a soft, malleable, lustrous elemental metal that also possesses the highest electrical conductivity, the highest thermal conductivity and the highest reflectivity of any metal. These unique properties make it almost irreplaceable in a myriad of industrial processes and commercial applications including photography, X-rays, electronics, telescopic mirrors, solar energy panels and windows, water purification systems and as a chemical catalyst. It has strong disinfectant properties which are becoming more utilized in medicine to control and prevent infections in an age of devastating nosocomial superbugs.
