Why order this Morgan 1879-S Silver Dollar?
The Morgan Silver Dollar is unique among American coins in that it has established itself as a piece of Americana. Often collected even by those who don't collect any other coins, it helped the United States to form a unique, common identity in the wake of the Civil War. This piece comes from just the second year of the series. This coin was awarded NGC's prestigious Green Label which was the result of a collaboration between the grading company and Rare Coin Company of America (RARCOA), one of the leading numismatic distributors in the United States.
Featuring the Classic Liberty Design of George T. Morgan
Both faces of this coin bear designs by George T. Morgan. Obverse: On the obverse is a left-side portrait of Liberty. She wears a ribbon that bears an inscription of her name, a Phrygian cap, and a crown made from one Southern crop, cotton, and one Northern one, wheat. "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "1879" are inscribed along the rim, where they are joined by thirteen stars.
Reverse: An open wreath partially encircles an eagle, which holds arrows and an olive branch, on the reverse. The national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," is inscribed between the eagle's wings. Along the rim are inscriptions of the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and the coin's face value, "ONE DOLLAR."
