Morgan's Powerful Liberty and Bald Eagle Designs

These coins are known as Morgan dollars because the obverse and reverse designs were created by George T. Morgan. The obverse shows his portrait of Liberty, she's facing the left and the date is just below her.

The face value is on the reverse. Since this coin was struck at the Philadelphia Mint, it does not have a mintmark. A bald eagle can be seen holding its wings high, it's partially surrounded by a wreath.
