Why purchase this 1892 Morgan Silver Dollar struck at the Carson City Mint in Nevada?

When the Bland-Allison Act was passed in 1878, the United States government was required to purchase between two and four million ounces of silver every month from western mines, with the sole purpose of minting silver dollars for general circulation. As a result, the Morgan Dollar was created. The coin was designed by and named for U.S. Mint assistant engraver George T. Morgan, who later became the seventh person to hold the title of Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint. This Morgan Dollar was struck at the Carson City Mint from 0.7734 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver with a diameter measurement of 38.1 mm, its mintage reported as 1,352,000 coins.

Symbols of Liberty and Freedom

Lady Liberty is depicted in a left facing pose on the obverse, wearing a "LIBERTY" engraved crown and a Phrygian cap, which has been a symbol signifying the pursuit of liberty since the era of ancient Rome. The image is encircled by thirteen stars, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "1892."

Representing freedom, the reverse bears the image of an eagle grasping an olive branch and arrows. Inscribed "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "IN GOD WE TRUST," "ONE DOLLAR" and "CC."
