Iconic Liberty Design by George Morgan
George T. Morgan's Liberty design, which is on the obverse of this coin, is arguably the most significant in American numismatic history. That is because of his choice to depict the figure in an American style, as opposed to a Greek style. Shown in left-side profile, she has long, curly hair that is partially covered by a Phrygian cap. She also wears a crown that is significant for a coin that was first issued shortly after the Civil War because it consists of a Southern crop, cotton, and a Northern one, wheat. Thirteen stars and two rim inscriptions, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many one) and "1889," encircle the image.
The reverse design consists of a wreath that largely encircles an eagle. The eagle holds arrows, symbols of America's willingness to protect her values, and an olive branch, which represents a preference for peace. The national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," is inscribed between the bird's wings. Two more inscriptions, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "ONE DOLLAR," are included along the rim.
