Why order this Silver Toned 1889 Morgan Dollar?
The 1889 Morgan is one of just a few coins without which no American coin collection is complete. With over 21.7 million pieces struck in Philadelphia that year, it is the highest mintage in the entire series. Each coin was struck on a .7734 troy oz planchet of constitutional, or .900 fine, silver. This one is unique, though, thanks to its attractive toning. Order now to receive the exact coin shown above.
Patriotic Liberty Design by George T. Morgan
Both the obverse and reverse were designed by George T. Morgan. For his obverse design, Morgan chose an American style model for Liberty, Anna Willess Williams, in a departure from the tradition of selecting Greek style models for the figure. On her head are a crown of cotton and wheat, a Southern crop and a Northern one, and a Phrygian cap that covers much of her long, curly hair. Her effigy is encircled by thirteen stars and two rim inscriptions, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one) and "1889."
On the reverse, an open wreath partially encircles an eagle, which holds arrows and an olive branch. Above the bird's head is an inscription of the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST." The design is encircled by a pair of rim inscriptions, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "ONE DOLLAR."
Beautifully Maintained MS63
This coin is in choice uncirculated condition. That is why Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) certified that it is in Mint State 63 condition. MS63 is an attractive grade for this issue given the scarcity of pieces in high mint state. There is also some lovely toning present.
