Full Description

Minted from 1878 to 1904, Pre-21 Morgan Dollars were designed by George T. Morgan at the Philadelphia Mint. Morgan prepared for the task of designing a Liberty Head coin by enrolling in the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and studied the bald eagle to prepare for creating the reverse design. Although Morgan’s first intention was to focus on the half-dollar, he was asked to adapt his Liberty head to be used on a silver dollar. This coin became known as the Morgan Dollar. The Pre-21 Morgan Dollars offered here are certified as Mint State-66 by coin grading service PCGS. These silver dollars won the hearts of silver collectors immediately. Composed of 0.7734 troy ounces of .900 Fine Silver, they are also an inexpensive way to increase precious metals holdings.

Obverse

The front of the Morgan Dollar shows Lady Liberty wearing a Phrygian cap, a soft, conical cap that symbolizes liberty. Morgan chose as his model Anna Willess Williams, a woman he said had the most perfect features of any woman he had seen. Below Liberty’s head is the year, to the sides are 13 stars representing the original colonies, and above is the motto ‘E Pluribus Unum.’

Reverse

The back of the coin shows an eagle with its wings outstretched. It holds in its claws arrows and an olive branch. ‘In God We Trust’ is shown in a line above the eagle, showing between its wings. Below the eagle is the face value of ‘One Dollar.’ Encircling the eagle are the words ‘United States of America.
