Design of the 1881-CC Morgan Silver Dollar
Morgan designed the image of Lady Liberty used on this 1881-CC Morgan Silver Dollar after Anna Willess Williams, creating a marked shift from the Greek-style figures previously used on American coinage. Lady Liberty faces to the left of the coin and dons a Phrygian cap under which her curly hair falls down below her neck. A ribbon in her hair bears the word, “LIBERTY.” Her neck is truncated upwards and to the right, creating space for the year of mintage, “1881.” Seven stars to the left of the date and six to the right represent the original states, and the words “E PLURIBUS UNUM” fill the remaining space on the rim.
The reverse design features an eagle that has its wings spread such that the nearly touch the edge of the coin in the upper left and upper right. Between its wings are the words of the national motto, “IN GOD WE TRUST.” The eagle carries important symbols of America’s preference for peace and willingness to defend her values, an olive branch and arrows respectively. Arching under the bird and upward to each wing is a laurel wreath. The mint mark, “CC,” appears just under the base of the wreath. Two inscriptions, “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “ONE DOLLAR,” are inscribed along the rim, denoting the country of issue and face value.
