Why purchase this 1887 Mint State Morgan Silver Dollar?
The Morgan Dollar was introduced by the U.S. Mint in 1878, its design featuring the artistry of George T. Morgan. This Morgan Silver Dollar is among a 20,290,000 mintage struck from 0.7734 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver in 1887 bearing no Mint mark, which confirms the coin's minting facility as the Philadelphia Mint.
Gorgeous Depiction of Lady Liberty
Lady Liberty is portrayed on the obverse, wearing a crown with "LIBERTY" inscribed and a Phrygian cap, which symbolizes liberty and freedom. The image is framed by thirteen stars, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "1887." On the reverse, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "ONE DOLLAR" wrap around an illustration of an eagle holding an olive branch and three arrows with a wreath below. "IN GOD WE TRUST" is inscribed above.
Morgan's initial "M" is hidden within each image; at the truncation of Liberty's neck and in the left side of the ribbon loop above the wreath.
