Why order this Toned 1889 Silver Morgan Dollar for your collection?
Of the few coins that are 'must haves' in any collection of American coins, the 1889 Morgan may be the most important. That year, more Morgans were produced in the Philadelphia Mint than in any other year in the series. In spite of the high mintage, pieces in high mint state are relatively rare, which is part of the reason that this MS63 piece is so attractive. It also has some stunning toning, which makes it entirely unique. Place your order now to receive the exact coin shown above.
Breathtaking Liberty Design by George T. Morgan
The obverse of this coin is among the most important in the history of American numismatics thanks to designer George T. Morgan's choice of an American style Liberty model rather than a Greek style one, as was customary until then. She shows her in left-side profile with long, curly hair that is partially covered by a Phrygian cap. Also on her head is a crown, which symbolizes American unity. That is because it is made from two staple American crops, wheat, which is primarily Northern, and cotton, which is Southern. Thirteen stars connect two rim inscriptions, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "1889."
An wreath provides an open frame for the eagle design on the reverse. The bird holds arrows in one talon and an olive branch in the other. Its head is turned toward the left side of the coin, and its wings are stretched toward the rim. Between those wings is an inscription of the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST." Other inscriptions on this face, which are included along the rim, read, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and, "ONE DOLLAR."
Well Maintained MS63
This coin lacks even the slightest traces of wear and is in choice uncirculated condition. That is why Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded it Mint State 63. It also displays some attractive toning.
