Why order this 1887 Silver Morgan Dollar?
Start or grow your collection of coins from the most iconic coin series in American history with this Silver 1887 Morgan Dollar. The Morgan was an important coin as designer George T. Morgan's obverse design departed from the tradition of depicting Liberty as a Greek-style figure and instead showed her as an American-style figure. This symbolism, along with that in her crown, was a small but important step for a country seeking to forge a unique, common identity in the years following the Civil War. The silver dollar is housed in a protective holder with the NGC's Green certification label, which was developed in partnership with Rare Coin Company of America (RARCOA).
Striking Liberty Design by George T. Morgan
Obverse: George T. Morgan's obverse design depicts Liberty in left-side profile. Along with a Phrygian cap and a ribbon that bears an inscription of her name, she dons a crown, which is made from a Southern crop, cotton, and a Northern one, wheat. The image is encircled by two inscriptions, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "1887," and thirteen stars.
Reverse: Morgan's reverse design shows an eagle holding arrows and an olive branch within an open wreath. The bird's outstretched wings reach toward the rim, and the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," is inscribed between them. The name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and the face value of the coin, "ONE DOLLAR," are inscribed along the rim.
