Breathing new life into the classic Morgan Dollar
Originally minted from 1878 to 1904, with a one-year return to glory in 1921, the Morgan Dollar is one of the most recognizable collectible coins from the U.S. Mint. Named after its creator, U.S. Mint Assistant-Engraver George T. Morgan, the Morgan Dollar showcased the British-born Morgan's extensive training in fine arts with his intricately detailed portrait of Lady Liberty. Morgan chose a Philadelphian model, Anna Willess Williams, to create a uniquely American-inspired version of Lady Liberty for this distinctive coin in a departure from the traditional Greek-inspired versions.
The obverse of the coin features the profile of Lady Liberty wearing a Phrygian cap, an ancient symbol of freedom and the Republican form of government. The cap is adorned with the word "LIBERTY" on the headband. Lady Liberty is encircled by a ring of stars and the Latin phrase "E PLURIBUS UNUM," a nod to the Great Seal of the U.S. The reverse of the coin carries the patriotic symbol of the American bald eagle grasping a branch and three arrows in its talons. A laurel wreath signifying victory surrounds the eagle with "IN GOD WE TRUST" featured in script above the eagle's head, centered between its outstretched wings. The reverse is completed with "HALF TROY OUNCE .999 FINE SILVER" and "GOLDEN STATE MINT" engravings on the top and bottom, respectively. Your coin is shipped in a protective plastic sleeve known as a "flip" to protect your investment.
