There are a number of online bullion sellers who deal in old silver coins as well as modern. JM Bullion is one. APMEX is another. There are some ebay sellers as well. The real coins are going to be a bit of an expense because of the silver. Google tells me there are reproductions, but I don't know how suitable they would be.

I just got rid of a bunch for their bullion price. Oh well.

Is there a reason they need to be Morgan dollars and not the less expensive (clad material) Eisenhower dollars?

Eisenhower dollars might still be found at some American banks for face value. The Morgan dollars price will be based on silver and other market forces.

Thank you for your post

The reasons for wanting Morgann silver dollers are Another boy who is a member of the Junior Magic Circle has them and they are a weight/ size suitable for magic tricks

If the Eisenhower dollers are of a similar weight and size they also would be suitable

Colonial Williamsburg gift shop sells repro Spanish coins that are a bit larger and a bit thicker than the old silver dollars. They are beautifully done,too. Not made of silver. Nickle alloys probably.

I have quite a few of them. I'm guessing shipping across the pond might be a little spendy but if you are interested in buying some at a fair price and paying the shipping I'm happy to send some over.

They are garden variety Morgan silver dollars that have been in circulation so they show some wear.

A Morgan silver dollar is 2.14 grams heavier than an Eisenhower dollar. The are the same size.

Not sure if Peace dollars, minted 1921-1928 and 1934-1935, would be less expensive than the Morgan dollars. Most of the common dates are valued at their silver content.

Another way to get some nice silver dollars that may cost a bit more is through the U.S. Mint:

I think the shipping is included. Not sure if that is the same for overseas buyers.
