Why add this 1896 Morgan Silver Dollar to your collection of historic American coinage?

Creation of the Morgan Dollar was a direct result of the Bland-Allison Act of 1878, which required the U.S. Treasury to purchase silver valued at 2-4 million dollars from western U.S. mines each month, with the sole purpose of minting one dollar denomination silver coinage. This 1896 Morgan Dollar was struck at the Philadelphia Mint from 0.7734 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver measuring 38.1 mm in diameter, with a final reported mintage of 9,976,000.

The Iconic Silver Dollar Design by George T. Morgan

The left facing image of Lady Liberty is centered on the obverse, wearing a traditional Phrygian cap, with her hair ornamented by a hair band inscribed "LIBERTY" along with sprays of wheat and oak. She is surrounded by thirteen stars, "E PLURIBUS UNUM," and "1896."

The reverse depicts a Bald Eagle in a heraldic pose, partially encircled by a wreath, grasping three arrows and an olive branch. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "ONE DOLLAR."

Gorgeous Mint State 66

This beautiful Morgan Silver Dollar struck in 1896 has been graded an impressive Mint State 66 by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS). Encased in a protective PCGS holder with certification label, the uncirculated Mint State coin will exhibit just a few scuffs or contact marks, with full original Mint luster and fantastic eye appeal overall.
