Why order this Morgan 1899 Silver Dollar?
Collectors looking for a turn of the century Morgan dollar would do well to pick up this piece from 1899. This issue is particularly sought after due to its low mintage of just 330,000 pieces. The coin is part of the most iconic series in American history. To this day, Morgans are often passed down from one generation to the next even among people who otherwise are not coin collectors. This piece was struck from .7734 oz of .900 fine silver at the Philadelphia Mint.
Featuring the Famous Liberty Design of George T. Morgan
George T. Morgan designed both faces of this coin, which takes its name from him. On the obverse is a left-side portrait of Liberty, whom Morgan depicts as an American style figure. This broke from the long standing tradition of showing her as a Greek style figure. On her head are a ribbon that bears an inscription of her name, a crown of cotton and wheat, and a Phrygian cap. The crown represents unity, as cotton is a Southern crop and wheat is a Northern one. The cap traditionally indicates that its wearer is a freed slave. "E PLURIBUS UNUM" arches over the image, while the date, "1899,' is inscribed below it. Thirteen stars, symbols of the original states, link these two inscriptions.
The reverse features a heraldic eagle that is partially encircled by an open wreath. In the bird's talons are arrows, which represent America's willingness to defend her values, and an olive branch, a traditional symbol of peace. The national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," is inscribed between the eagle's wings. "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "ONE DOLLAR" are inscribed on the rim.
