Why add this Silver 1887 Morgan Dollar to your collection?
For serious collectors of America's favorite coin, a Morgan 1887 Silver Dollar is a must. The coin is among the most available in high grades, which would make the absence of a Brilliant Uncirculated piece in a Morgan collection particularly noticeable. This coin was struck at the Philadelphia Mint from .7734 Troy oz of .999 fine silver.
Classic Liberty Design by George T. Morgan
This coin gets its name from the man who designed it, George T. Morgan. On the obverse is his America-style Liberty design, which he modeled off of Anna Willess Williams. Morgan's departure from the traditional Greek-style Liberty made this coin especially significant in American numismatic history. The left-side portrait of Liberty shows her wearing a crown of two staple American crops, cotton and wheat, a Phrygian cap, which symbolizes her freedom, and a ribbon that bears her name, "LIBERTY." "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one) arches over the image and is joined on the rim by thirteen stars and the date.
The reverse features the national bird. The bald eagle has its wings spread upward, framing the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST." It clutches arrows and an olive branch in its talons. They symbolize military readiness and a preference for peace, respectively. A laurel wreath arches under the bird.
