Why purchase this Morgan 1883-O Silver Dollar?
George T. Morgan helped a nation to heal in the wake of a bloody Civil War with his Morgan Silver Dollar. Morgan broke with tradition on his obverse design by showing Liberty as an American style figure for the first time. Prior to that the tradition was to show her as a Greek style figure. He also made great use of symbolism in other ways, as he depicts her wearing a cap made from a Southern crop and a Northern one. Don't miss your chance to own this coin, which helped the nation to come together with a common, unique identity starting with its first issue in the decade after the Civil War.
Iconic Eagle Design by George T. Morgan.
Obverse: The obverse design was the creation of George T. Morgan. Liberty features in left-side profile on the reverse. On her head are a Phrygian cap, a ribbon that bears an inscription of her name, "LIBERTY," and a crown of cotton and wheat. Inscriptions along the rim read, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "1883."
Reverse: An eagle holds arrows and an olive branch in its talons within an open wreath in Morgan's reverse design. The national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," is inscribed above the eagle's head. The name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and the coin's face value, 'ONE DOLLAR," are inscribed along the rim.
