Featuring George T. Morgan's Patriotic Liberty Design
George T. Morgan broke with the long standing tradition of depicting Liberty as a Greek-style figure by choosing Anna Willess Williams, an American-style figure, as his model. She faces left wearing a crown, a Phrygian cap, and a ribbon that bears an inscription of her name. The crown is a symbol of unity, as it consists of cotton, a Southern crop, and wheat, a Northern one. The Phrygian cap indicates that she is a freed slave. A statutory motto, "E PLURIBUS UNUM," and the date, "1883," are inscribed along the rim, connected by thirteen stars, symbols of the original states.
On the reverse is a heraldic eagle that stretches its wings toward the edge. In its claws, the bird clutches arrows, symbols of America's readiness to defend her values, and an olive branch, which expresses a desire for peace. Partially encircling the eagle is an open wreath. Between the bird's wings is an inscription of the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST." Additional reverse inscriptions, which are on the rim, offer the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and the coin's face value, "ONE DOLLAR."
