This makes it more appealing due to its scarcity. The 1897 VAM-8 Morgan dollar is on the Hot 50 list of die varieties for the series.

Morgan's Liberty with Doubled Stars

The date is located on the obverse near the bottom of the design. The portrait of Liberty on this side is the work of George T. Morgan.

The reverse shows a detailed bald eagle design also by Morgan. The eagle is holding its chest and wings high while it clutches arrows and an olive branch with its talons.
