A product of the Philadelphia Mint, this 38.10 mm diameter 1890 Morgan Dollar is struck from 0.7734 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver, its final mintage reported to be 16,802,000.

A magnificently detailed bald eagle is depicted on the reverse, with three arrows and an olive branch in its grip, and a wreath curving below. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "ONE DOLLAR" and "IN GOD WE TRUST." Philadelphia minted Morgan Dollars do not carry a Mint mark.
