The legendary Morgan Silver Dollar
The Morgan silver dollar is widely regarded as the most collected and beloved issue to ever come from the United States Mint. The Morgan Dollar design was developed in late 1877 by Assistant Engraver to the United States Mint, Mr. George T. Morgan, after working through several revisions to finally arrive at the design to be used for minting the new dollar coin. The first Morgan silver dollar rolled off the press in 1878 and continued unabated until 1904 where the series all but ended, minus the lone issue of 1921 due to The Pittman Act.
The artistic rendition of Lady Liberty and the overall beauty of the Morgan Dollar is what has captivated collectors for decades. The obverse of the coin proudly displays a distinctly Americanized adaption of Lady Liberty sporting a Phrygian cap on her head, with several branches and leaves protruding from behind the headband bearing the inscription "LIBERTY". The obverse of this coin is just as inspiring as the front side with the commanding presence of the American eagle with wings outstretched. Clutched in the talons of the eagle you will find three arrows and an olive branch as it prepares for flight. Both of these incredible designs have been admired by collectors for many years and have thrust the Morgan Silver Dollar to the forefront of United States coin collecting.
