Why add this 1893 Morgan Silver Dollar to your collection?

Introduced by the U.S. Mint in 1878, the Morgan Dollar was minted on an annual basis until 1904, and then for one final year in 1921. Designed by U.S. Mint assistant engraver George T. Morgan, the coin's portrait is inspired by the image of Philadelphia school teacher Anna Willess Williams. This 1893 Morgan Dollar was produced at the Philadelphia Mint, struck from 0.7734 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver, its diameter measuring 38.1 mm. The coin is among one of the lowest recorded mintages of the series; only 378,000 were struck.

Morgan's Silver Dollar Design

The obverse features the image of Lady Liberty wearing a Phrygian cap coupled with a hair band inscribed "LIBERTY," her hair woven with sprays of wheat and oak. She is surrounded by thirteen stars, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "1893."

The reverse depicts a Bald Eagle partially contained by a wreath from below, grasping arrows and an olive branch in its talons. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and "ONE DOLLAR."
