Whenever we talk about price, that almost always means that money is involved. But there are kinds of money that has a price on its own that is higher than what is indicated on its face. Such are the pieces of currency that are now being held as collection of wealthy people.
One such kind is the Morgan silver dollar that was named after its designer. This became a collectible because the United States is no longer using this. This coin had used pure silver as its material. But since the pure silver metal has become so expensive, it has become impractical for the country to keep producing those coins and using them as legal tender. So now, these limited edition coins are raking a hefty price among collectors all over the world. They are being preserved by collectors as part of the culture and the rich economy that were already past.
