Why add this Extremely Fine 1881-S Morgan Silver Dollar to your collection?
The U.S. Mint's Morgan Silver Dollar series is named for its designer, George T. Morgan. The series was introduced in 1878, and issued for a total of twenty-eight years. This 38.1 mm diameter Morgan dollar is minted from 0.7734 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver. The coin is one of the 12,760,000 struck at the San Francisco Mint in 1881.
Iconic Morgan Silver Dollar Design
The obverse features Lady Liberty in a left facing pose, surrounded by thirteen six-pointed stars. Inscriptions include "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "1881," with "LIBERTY" on the headband of her Phrygian cap. Morgan's initial "M" appears at the truncation of Liberty's neck, just above her lowest curl of hair.
The reverse depicts a bald eagle with its wings outstretched, grasping an olive branch and arrows. The U.S. national bird is partially encircled by a wreath below, with the inscription "IN GOD WE TRUST" above. Additional inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "ONE DOLLAR" and the "S" Mint mark of the San Francisco Mint.
