    Carson City Silver Dollars

    Posted on October 15th, 2021 by JoeG

    We as coin buyers in Chicago are continually looking to purchase old United States coins of all denominations whether Gold, Silver, Copper or Nickel. If you’re thinking to sell Silver Dollars we are always buying them. We particularly are interested in the Carson City silver dollars minted from 1878-1893 sometimes including the 1900 O/CC.

    The survival rate is very low from the original numbers minted and some Carson City mintage dates are rarer than others.
    While the Carson City silver dollars were minted between 1878 to 1893
    The rarer dates include :
    1878 CC
    1879 CC
    1880 CC
    1881 CC
    1885 CC
    1889 CC
    1890 CC
    1891 CC
    1892 CC
    1893 CC
    The 1889 CC is considered the most sought-after Carson City dollar.

    The way you can know if you have a Carson City dollar is to look on the reverse side ( eagle side) and look at the bottom between the word
    One Dollar ( see photo) and if there are the letters CC then you have a Carson City.

    If you discover that you own a Carson City dollar bring it into the best coin buyer in Chicago at Chicago Gold Gallery. Our experienced buyer will give you a free in-person evaluation and make a cash offer to buy your coin and collection on the spot! We also purchase other coins as well. Call and come in today, there’s always easy safe parking right in front of our store.

    Customer Testimonial

    Had a Great Experience

    "I drove all the way from the south side just to sell my silver to Chicago Gold Gallery because of the knowledge and professionalism I received on the phone. They gave me top dollar for my silver and were so fast and friendly. I definitely recommend this business!"

    Can't say enough about this place.

    This is the most welcoming, non-pretentious place to do business! I was researching where to sell sterling silver I had and ended up choosing here based on the other great reviews. They walked me through the whole process and answered my questions. I got a great price for my items & will go there again.

    Love this place!

    Chrissy & Joe are all super friendly and easy to work with. I trust them and they will do whatever they can to help you including giving you advice on what you have or what you should look for. I won't ever go anywhere else and I've recommended it to several friends.

    I would do business with them again

    I had a large collection of silver coins sitting in my safe deposit box for 15+ years. Chrissy was so friendly and helpful she even gave me advice about coins I didn't know. She was more than happy to help me for over an hour in between taking care of other customers. They really did give me top dollar for my coins. Whether you are new or a pro with coins, I can highly recommend you take them here!

    Don't Hesitate to call...

    I find that Joe at Chicago Gold Gallery consistently offers and pays more for my coins than coin dealers in Chicagoland. He's very nice and easy to deal with. Don't hesitate to call him and preferably visit him.
