Today, many see the Morgan silver dollar as a reminder of the Wild West era of United States history. Beginning in 1878, these coins were a part of daily life for many Americans. The Morgan dollar shown here was struck at the San Francisco Mint in 1880. It had a moderate mintage of 8,900,000 pieces.

Morgan's Patriotic Art on Obverse and Reverse

While these coins are known as Morgan dollars, the woman depicted on the obverse is actually Liberty. She can be seen wearing a small cap. The name Morgan dollar comes from the artist who created the designs, George T. Morgan.

The reverse shows a bald eagle within half a wreath. This eagle is holding its wings high and its chest out. It can be seen grasping a bundle of arrows and an olive branch with its talons. The "S" mintmark is below the bottom of the wreath.
