Classic Designs by George T. Morgan
This coin gets its name from its designer, George T. Morgan. On the obverse is a left-side portrait of Liberty. She dons a crown of wheat and cotton, two of the nation's staple crops, as well as a Phrygian cap, which symbolizes freedom from slavery. Morgan modeled Liberty after Anna Willess Williams, an American figure, marking a stark contrast with earlier Liberty models, who looked more Greek. "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one) is inscribed above the portrait, while the year of issue, "1884," is inscribed below. Thirteen stars, split into six on one side and seven on the other, connect the inscriptions and represent the original states.
On the reverse is an eagle, which has its body oriented toward the holder and its head turned toward the left side of the coin. Its wings are spread upward, extending to the rim. Between the wings above the bird's head is the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST." In its talons, the eagle grasps a symbol of peace, an olive branch, and three arrows, symbols of military readiness. A wreath of laurel arches under the image.
