Why purchase this Silver 1879-O Morgan Dollar?

Those looking for an affordable way to start or grow a collection of arguably the most recognizable coin in American history would do well to pick up this 1879-O Silver Morgan Dollar, which comes from the second year of the coin's run. Like other Morgans, it was struck from .7734 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver, also known as "constitutional silver." It bears the "O" Mint mark of the New Orleans Mint at the base of the reverse design.

Iconic Liberty Design by George T. Morgan

Both faces were designed by George T. Morgan, from whom the coin gets its name. On the obverse is his groundbreaking Liberty design in which he depicts Liberty as an American-style figure rather than the traditional Greek-style. She wears a crown of two staple American crops, cotton and wheat, and wears a ribbon that bears her name, "LIBERTY." She also dons a Phrygian cap, which symbolizes her freedom.

On the reverse, an eagle has its wings spread as it clutches arrows and an olive branch, which symbolize military readiness and a preference for peace, respectively. A laurel wreath wraps under the bird, while the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," is inscribed above its head.

Well Preserved XF

This coin is in Extremely Fine condition. That means that the details are complete, but there is some wear on the high points.

Don't miss your chance to own this Morgan 1879-O Silver Dollar.
