Why purchase this 1885-O Morgan Silver Dollar?
The Morgan Silver Dollar was created as a response to the increased supply of silver and encouragement from the mining industry in the western states following the discovery of the Comstock Lode in 1859. English-born immigrant George T. Morgan, assistant to U.S. Mint Chief Engraver William Barber, designed the silver dollar coin with the image of the Goddess of Liberty in 1878, based on sketches of Philadelphia school teacher Anna Willess Williams. This 1885 Morgan Dollar was struck at the New Orleans Mint from 0.7734 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver, measures 38.1 mm in diameter, and has a final mintage reported as 9,185,000.
