Why purchase this Morgan 1890-O Silver Dollar?

Morgan Dollars from the New Orleans Mint have special meaning since the facility was located in the old Confederacy and the series represents national unity and identity. The mint generally struck coins weakly, though, so this Almost Uncirculated piece is relatively attractive. It bears the mint's "O" mint mark. Part of a mintage of just over 10.7 million pieces, this coin was struck on a .7734 oz planchet of .900 fine silver.

Featuring the Iconic Liberty Design of George T. Morgan

This coin takes its name from the man who designed both of its faces, George T. Morgan. The obverse features his famous Liberty design. Morgan broke from the long standing tradition of showing her as a Greek-style figure in favor of depicting her as an American-style figure. He showed her in left-side profile wearing a ribbon, a cap, and a crown. The ribbon bears an inscription of her name. The crown is a symbol of unity, consisting of a Southern crop, cotton, and a Northern crop, wheat. Her Phrygian cap identifies her as a freed slave. Thirteen stars, which represent the original states, join the motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and the date, "1890," on the rim.

The reverse features a heraldic eagle. It spreads its wings toward the rim, and an open wreath partially encircles it. In the eagle's talons are arrows, symbols of America's willingness to defend her values, and an olive branch, a symbol of peace. This image is encircled by a pair of rim inscriptions that note the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and the face value of the coin, "ONE DOLLAR."
