1921 Morgan Silver Dollar: Thanks to Farenheit1100!

We received another fabulous gift of a 1921 Morgan Silver Dollar from Farenheit1100 (Hugh), to add to our collection. By way of comparison to the largest Australian silver coin we find on our hunts (the Florin or Two Shilling coin), the Morgan dollar is a monster! However, there is a comparable Australian silver coin; the Crown coin (five shillings) at 37.5mm diameter is almost identical in size to the Silver Dollar. Unfortunately, we are yet to unearth an Australian Silver Crown (they were only minted for two years, 1937 & 1938) – so we can’t show you one! This would be a ‘dream’ find for us, hopefully coming to a video soon! Please take the time to visit Hugh’s YouTube Channel www.youtube.com/user/farenheit1100. He has a wealth of metal detecting experience and a range of educational videos relating to our great hobby, and if you need to know anything about that mysterious item of ammunition you have dug up, Hugh is the first port of call. Thanks Hugh! Happy Hunting!

  1. Thanks for watching RobSue, I’m a real fan of the Crown too, have only seen them in coin shops – could you imagine digging one up!! The ambulance would arrive ten minutes later in an attempt to revive the detectorist LOL. GL and HH mate.

  4. Very nice coin. I’m glad you mentioned the Aussie Crown. Whenever I’ve mentioned it in conversation, it being so rare, most don’t know it existed. If I ever see one, let alone detect one, I’ll get excited. HH.

  6. Thanks for watching Pete, Hugh’s gift was a very generous one – as for the Aussie Crown, I love those coins – so I’ll give myself a couple of more years to dig one up with the detector – failing that, just buy one at a coin shop LOL. GL and HH mate.

  9. Warren the American coins are beautiful and I have quite a few myself plus a 1937 and 38 Aussie crowns. That was great of Hugh to send you that coin and it makes the florin look very small indeed. Cheers Mate, Pete

  11. Rich, your insight here is spot on mate, the Crowns were withdrawn after just two years here because silver prices went up, but mainly because the big coins were enormously unpopular with the public – they were derided as “Casey’s Cartwheel” (Casey was the Federal Treasurer who introduced them), same deal, no-one would carry them around so they ended up in jars in the backs of wardrobes LOL. Someone might have dropped one somewhere I hope?? GL and HH mate.

  14. Thanks for watching Ill digger, “just another soda can” would pretty much sum up the signal from one of those monsters LOL. Great gift from Hugh – appreciate you commenting mate, GL and HH!

  17. That’s a really cool gift, Warren, and very generous of Farenheit 1100 too. I have to admit that here in the UK Crown coins were for a very long time legal tender, and many different designs were made, but I suspect that because of their size and weight, few people bothered to carry them and so, the chances of finding one is also getting on for scarce here too. 😉 Thanks for sharing. GL & HH on your next trip 😀

  19. Super cool gift! My buddy found one with his metal detector and he said he thought it was going to be “just another soda can.” Lol
    They are biggin’ aren’t they!
    HH : )

  20. Thanks for watching Econofresh. Have seen Australian Crowns for sale in the coin shops around the place, but really would love to find one ‘live’ on video with a metal detector! Appreciate your comment, best of luck and Happy Hunting!
