The easiest and cheapest silver coin for beginning silver coin collector is the U.S. Morgan Silver Dollar. Minted from 1878 to 1904 (and for one last time in 1921) it had a a solid silver heft of 90% silver. Unfortunately, by the 20th century, their popularity waned as paper money became more popular Americans.
I have began collecting these since the early 1980s. One here, one there, I have started to amass quite a collection. There are only two reliable ways you can acquire Morgan Silver Dollars. My preferred method of acquiring these little silver gems is to purchase them off eBay. If you watch, you can usually get a deal. The second, but safest method, is to buy from a reputable coin dealer. I suggest online coin deals because their prices, and return policies, are MUCH more favorable.
