American Liberty Design by George T. Morgan
The coin's designer, George Morgan, made history when he chose Anna Willess Williams as his model for Liberty. She was an American-style figure, so she offered a revolutionary look compared to the Greek-style models who went before her. On her head are a Phrygian cap and a crown. The cap symbolizes freedom, while the crown indicates unity between North and South, as it was made from one Northern crop, wheat, and one Southern one, cotton. The date, "1889," is inscribed along the rim, as is "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one). They are joined by thirteen stars.
On the reverse, a wreath stretches from under each wing of an eagle. The bird holds arrows and an olive branch, symbols of military preparedness and peace, in its talons. The national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," is inscribed between the bird's wings. The coin's country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and face value, "ONE DOLLAR," are inscribed along the rim.
