Patriotic Eagle Design by George T. Morgan
Obverse: Like the reverse, the obverse was designed by George T. Morgan. Liberty, who is depicted as an American style figure in a break from tradition, is shown in left-side profile wearing a Phrygian cap, a ribbon that bears an inscription of her name, and a crown of wheat and cotton, one Northern crop and one Southern one. Encircling her effigy are two inscriptions, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "1880," which are connected by thirteen stars.
Reverse: On the reverse, an open wreath partially encircles an eagle, which holds arrows and an olive branch in its talons. The national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," is inscribed between the bird's outstretched wings. Along the rim are inscriptions that provide the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and the face value of the coin, "ONE DOLLAR."
