Patriotic Eagle Design by George T. Morgan

Inscriptions along the rim include a statutory motto, "E PLURIBUS UNUM," and the date, "1887." Those inscriptions are joined by thirteen stars.
Reverse: Morgan's reverse design depicts an eagle clutching arrows and an olive branch within an open wreath. The national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," is inscribed above the bird's head. Inscribed along the rim are the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and the face value of the coin, "ONE DOLLAR."
