This Gold Proof George T. Morgan 1876 $100 Union Private Issue is a ModernCoinMart (MCM) exclusive! The sketches for George T.

This incredible commemorative proof is struck from 1/10 Troy oz. of .999 fine gold, based on Morgan's design sketches.

Designs never seen on coinage before

On the reverse, Lady Liberty is seated in a scene among symbols of commerce, a ship pulling in to harbor and stalks of ribbon wrapped wheat, while she grasps a scepter and an olive branch. The image is surrounded by a wide border inscribed "LIBERTY" and "1876" with thirteen stars.

An eagle with its wings stretched open adorns the obverse, perched on a striped shield, holding an olive branch and three arrows. Inscribed above are "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "IN GOD WE TRUST".
