Why purchase this Brilliant Uncirculated 1882-O Morgan Silver Dollar?
The Morgan Silver Dollar series was introduced by the U.S. Mint in 1878, as a direct result of the passage of the Bland-Allison Act. The Act required the government to purchase high amounts of silver from western U.S. mines for the purpose of minting dollar denomination coinage. This 1882 Morgan Dollar is a product to the New Orleans Mint, struck from 0.7734 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver. A total of 6,090,000 were minted.
George T. Morgan's Distinctive Silver Dollar Design
The obverse features a left facing image of Lady Liberty, wearing a Phrygian cap decorated with cotton bolls and sprigs of wheat and oak. Inscriptions include "LIBERTY" upon her crown, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "1882." The portrait is accompanied by thirteen stars which represent the original colonies.
Centered on the reverse is a bald eagle, posed with its wings opened and head turned to the left. The eagle is holding a cluster of arrows and an olive branch, above the New Orleans Mint mark "O" and a ribbon-tied wreath of laurel. The image is surrounded by the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "ONE DOLLAR."
