Start or grow your collection of Morgan Silver Dollars with this stunning piece form 1881. The coin was struck at the San Francisco Mint.

Unifying Liberty Design by George T. Morgan
George T. Morgan designed both faces of this coin. Obverse: On the obverse is a left-side portrait of Liberty, whom Morgan depicts as an American-style figure. She wears a ribbon that bears an inscription of her name, a Phrygian cap, and a crown made from one Northern crop, wheat, and one Southern crop, cotton. Along the rim are the inscriptions "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "1881," which are connected by thirteen stars.
Reverse: An open wreath partially encircles an eagle, which holds arrows and an olive branch on the reverse. Between the eagle's wings is an inscription of the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST." The name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and the coin's face value, "ONE DOLLAR," are inscribed along the irm.
