Why buy this Silver 1882-S Morgan Dollar?

This 1882-S Silver Morgan Dollar comes from the fifth year in the popular series. It is ideal for collectors looking for a high-grade Morgan dollars. This piece was struck at the San Francisco Mint, which is represented by the "S" Mint mark at the bottom of the design on the reverse, from .900 fine silver.

Iconic Liberty design by George T. Morgan

George T. Morgan, who designed both faces of the coin, lends his name to it. On the obverse is a left-side portrait of Liberty for which Morgan chose Anna Willess Williams as his model. She wears three items on her head: a ribbon that bears an inscription of her name, a crown of cotton and wheat, an a Phrygian cap. Morgan chose cotton and wheat because the are staple American crops, while he used a Phrygian cap to symbolize her freedom.

The reverse design features a theme that is common in American coinage. An eagle holds arrows and an olive branch, symbols of military readiness and a preference for peace, in its talons. It spreads its wings upward, and the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," is inscribed between them. A wreath arches under the eagle from just below one wing to just below the other.

Uncirculated Mint State 66

This coin received a grade of Mint State 66 from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). Coins graded Mint State 66 were struck well but have a few minimal marks and hairlines.
