Why purchase this Morgan Silver Dollar minted in San Francisco, 1880?

The U.S. Mint began producing the Morgan Silver Dollar series in 1878. Imagery of the coin is credited to George T. Morgan, a newly appointed assistant engraver at the Mint. This third year of issue example was struck in 1880 at the Mint's facility in San Francisco from 0.7734 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver. Final mintage of the 38.1 mm diameter silver dollar is reported as 8,900,000.

Morgan's Beautiful Silver Dollar Design

Lady Liberty is illustrated on the obverse in a classically styled profile portrait, wearing a Phrygian cap and crown inscribed "LIBERTY," with an array of leaves, flowers and grains decorating her hair. The image is surrounded by the inscriptions "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "1880," along with thirteen stars.

The reverse features an eagle with its wings outstretched, holding an olive branch and three arrows in its talons, with a laurel wreath curving below. Inscribed "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "ONE DOLLAR," with the "S" Mint mark near the wreath's ribbon.
