Why buy this Silver 1889 Toned Morgan Dollar?

The 1889 Morgan was the highest issue of any coin in the series, with over 21.7 million pieces struck at the Philadelphia Mint. In spite of its high mintage, examples of this coin in high mint state are not easy to find. That is why discerning collectors are sure to appreciate this MS63 example. The coin, which was struck on a .7734 troy oz planchet of .900 fine silver, has some attractive toning. You will receive the exact piece shown above.

Novel Liberty Design by George Morgan

Both faces of the Morgan Dollar were designed by the man for whom it is named, George T. Morgan. Morgan made history with the obverse design by breaking with the tradition of choosing a Greek style model for Liberty and instead choosing an American style one, Anna Willess Williams. Morgan shows the figure in left-side profile wearing a Phrygian cap and and a crown. The cap indicates that she is a freed slave, while the crown symbolizes national unity, as it is made from cotton, a Southern crop, and wheat, a Northern one. "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one) and "1889" join thirteen stars on the rim to encircle the image.

On the reverse, an eagle is partially encircled by an open wreath. The national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," is inscribed above the bird's head. The eagle holds arrows and an olive branch in its talons, the arrows representing America's willingness to defend her values and the olive branch indicating a preference for peace. Rim inscriptions offer the country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and face value, "ONE DOLLAR," of the coin.

Uncirculated MS63

This coin was graded Mint State 63 by the team at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). Coins in that grade are considered to be in choice uncirculated condition. It displays some nice toning.
