Why add the 1888 Morgan Silver Dollar NGC MS66 to your collection?
This 1888 Morgan Silver Dollar was graded at the desirable Mint State 66 (MS66) level by the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). The coin was struck at the Philadelphia branch of the United States Mint. This is one of the most iconic and widely collected series ever produced in U.S. coinage. The series was struck on 90% pure silver planchets that contain .7734 oz. of silver. The U.S. Government was required by 1918 Pittman Act to melt and sell up to 350 million Morgan Silver Dollars that were stored in bank vaults.
George T. Morgan's masterful design
The obverse of the coin features the classic depiction of Liberty as modeled by Anna Williams, a schoolteacher from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Liberty is shown in profile with a crown, agricultural motifs and curly locks. The reverse features an American Bald Eagle with wings powerfully spread, encircled by a laurel wreath. Over the eagle's head appears the motto "In God We Trust" in Gothic lettering.
