It was struck at the fabled Granite Lady herself, the San Francisco Mint, which was the second building to serve as a Mint facility in San Francisco. The Morgan dollar was struck on a 90% pure silver planchet containing .7734 oz. ASW.

George T. Morgan, an English immigrant was the designer of this iconic American coin. He was thirty when he designed the coin as one of his earliest assignments for the Mint. He later rose to the post of Chief Engraver of the Mint in 1917 afte engraver Barber's death. The model for the obverse of the coin was Miss Anna Willess Williams, a Philadelphia school teacher.

The classic reverse of the coin features the emblematic American Bald Eagle, with wings fiercely spread, a symbol of power and majesty.
