Silver Dollar Design by George T. Morgan
The image of Lady Liberty wearing a "LIBERTY" crown adorns the obverse, framed by "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "1900" and thirteen six-pointed stars. Liberty's hair is ornamented with grains of wheat, cotton bolls and oak leaves in celebration of the nation's advancement in agricultural methods.
The inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "ONE DOLLAR" accompany the depiction of a bald eagle clutching an olive branch and three arrows on the reverse. The lack of a Mint mark is confirmation of the coin's origin at the Philadelphia Mint.
