Why add the 1889 Morgan Silver Dollar BU to your collection?
This 1889 Morgan Silver Dollar is offered in stunningly beautiful Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The Morgan Silver Dollar has a storied history and occupies a unique place in American Numismatics. It was struck from 1878 through 1904 and one last time in 1921. In the original run, this 1889 issue with the astounding mintage of 21,726,000 was the highest mintage of the series until the final year of issue. Many representatives of this Philadelphia Mint struck coin were melted after World War I and the issue was hard to get until surviving examples were released from the U.S. Treasury vaults in the mid 20th Century. This issue was struck on a .900 fine silver planchet that contains .7734 oz. of bullion.
Liberty's Flawless Face
Anna Willis Williams, a Philadelphia teacher was the model for Liberty's obverse portrait. The reverse features an Eagle, timeless symbol of strength for all Americans as he holds arrows and an olive branch. These symbolize our desire for Peace and our willingness to defend it. U.S. Mint Engraver George T. Morgan designed this iconic coinage series.

In 1878, thirteen years after the end of America’s devastating Civil War, the united, but wounded nation, saw the introduction of a new silver dollar. Designed by George T. Morgan, the country’s new coin featured patriotic imagery and served as a powerful symbol of unity that helped heal a nation.
