The Morgan Silver Dollar was a product of the United States Mint for a total of twenty-eight years. Introduced in 1878, the series was issued annually through 1904, then for one final year in 1921 before it was replaced by the Peace Dollar. Measuring 38.1 mm in diameter, this Morgan Dollar was struck from 0.7734 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver at the New Orleans Mint in 1891. Final mintage is reported to be 7,954,529 coins.
Exceptionally Detailed Designs by George T. Morgan
The obverse features the left facing image of Lady Liberty with sprigs of wheat, cotton and oak woven into her hair. She wears a Phrygian cap with "LIBERTY" inscribed onto the headband, which signifies freedom and the pursuit of liberty. She is surrounded by thirteen stars, "1891" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
A bald eagle is depicted on the reverse, with an olive branch and bundle of arrows in its grip. The eagle is partially framed by a ribbon-tied laurel wreath, with the New Orleans Mint mark "O" positioned below. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "ONE DOLLAR" and "IN GOD WE TRUST."
