Why purchase this Silver 1887 Morgan Dollar?
No coin has forged for itself a place in Americana quite like the Morgan Silver Dollar. The coin was first issued in the decade following the Civil War and helped a broken nation heal with a new, common identity. This piece comes from the Philadelphia Mint and was struck as part of the tenth issue in the series.
Novel Liberty Design by George T. Morgan
Obverse: George T. Morgan designed both faces of this coin. The obverse bears a left-side portrait of Liberty, who wears a Phrygian cap, a ribbon that bears an inscription of her name, and a crown of cotton and wheat. Along the rim are the inscriptions "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "1887," which are connected by thirteen stars.
Reverse: The name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and the coin's face value, "ONE DOLLAR," are inscribed along the rim of the reverse. They encircle an open wreath, which itself partially encircles an eagle that clutches arrows and an olive branch. Between the bird's outstretched wings is an inscription of the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST."
