A Morgan dollar has a silver content of .773 of a troy ounce in silver. Keep in mind though that some Morgan Dollars, especially those with a CC mintmark, or Morgan Dollars in mint state, may be worth more to a collector of coins than just their silver content, however, worn or common coins usually sell for only their silver content, especially with how expensive silver is now.
