Novel Liberty Design by George T. Morgan
This iconic coin takes its name from the man who designed it, George T. Morgan. On the obverse, he depicts Liberty in an American-style, a marked change from the tradition of the time of depicting her as a Greek-style figure. He shows her in left-side profile wearing a crown of cotton and wheat, one Southern crop and one Northern one, and a Phrygian cap, something worn by a freed slave. Her effigy is encircled by two rim inscriptions, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one) and "1889," and thirteen stars.
Morgan's reverse design shows a wreath largely encircling an eagle, which holds arrows and an olive branch. The arrows indicate that America will defend her values when necessary, while the olive branch represents a preference for peace. The coin's country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and face value, "ONE DOLLAR," are inscribed along the rim.
Beautifully Preserved MS63
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) certified that this coin is in Mint State 63 condition. That means that it has no signs of wear. Examples of this coin in high mint state are difficult to find, which makes this toned MS63 piece especially appealing.
